It must be wonderful to see these magnificent ships sail by. That's an excellent close up.

Splendid captures Dianne. I am in awe of those brave individuals of yesteryear who had to climb the rigging to tend to the sails at dizzying heights while the vessel was being tossed around in wild seas like a cork - without the protection of safety harnesses!!

It's a lovely ship. I heard earlier there will be some tall ships here at the weekend. I wonder if she will be one of them.
