Excerpt from Through Holland in the Vivette: The Cruise of A 4-Tonner From the Solent to the Zuyder Zee, Through the Dutch Waterways

There are two ways of taking a cruise. The first is to sail from one port to another for the sheer delight in reaching a definite place. The joy of sea manship, navigation, and life on board is in itself complete. Shore interests, peoples, and scenery do not come within the scope of the man who elects to adopt this method. He is the counterpart of that other yachtsman, made famous in a certain nautical novel, who regarded the shore usually as a nuisance and convenient only for the purpose of replenishing the ship's stores.

The other plan, however, is to sacrifice none of the pleasures of sailing, but to add to these all the interest which can be derived from the people and the places visited. The shore is to be regarded not solely as a tiresome necessity, but as affording contrasts to the life on board with manifold delights in the customs of the people and the scenery through which one passes.
