Haha, I see you chose the smaller, more intimate boat.

Now that is the way I too like to do my training.

You are right, large flocks of Galahs, Corellas and Sulphur -crested Cockatoos can do great damage to newly sown grain crops as well as crops before harvest.

This looks familiar from the videos I used when teaching about Columbus! One of them shows Portuguese sailors training on a large sailing ship, but I think it was different than this one.

Beautiful shots. Looks at the sky in the first one. Lots of boats in the water, also. Everyone's having fun. You must have been in a boat yourself? Your own boat?

I'll tell you what - these pictures sure float my boat!

What a beautiful tall ship! The complexity of the sails are really interesting.

Oh, I love the big, tall ship, JM! How beautiful! And I would love to be sunning on that deck right now!! Well, I really can't complain about Seattle weather today -- it's gorgeous, mild and clear blue skies, but I'd still love to be on the water! Your photos are the next best thing to being there! Hope your week is off to a good start!

Those tall ships are magnificent. . .and it looks as if you suffered no hardships in following along!

Such a beautiful ship - I wonder if it's one I saw in Liverpool a couple of years ago when they all started a race from there?

Birdman said...

Neat feet!

Jack said...

Tall ships are amazing sights. They are visiting southeast Connecticut sometime soon, but unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to see them this year.

Randy said...

Lets go for a ride!

Kate said...

Gorgeous ship! The manicured toenails look pretty spiffy, too.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I like those feet gathering sunshine.

Love the first shot of this ship! It's great being out on the water, isn't it?!
