What does it feel like to be back after a rest?
Renewed enthusiasm or not?

These are beautiful ships with their high masts and sails. Very small in the middle of the Pacific but I would not be afraid to try one.

I forgot about this being theme day about books but I found some that I wrote and put them online.

These are beautiful ships! You got great photos of them. I can not imagine myself ever brave enough to go up into that rigging!

Rose said...

Yippee! Welcome back...I love these tall ships. I would love to take a short trip on one.

You know, when I was young say until my early 30's I could have been one of those guys climbing around up there on those ropes and not minded at all. Now, you couldn't pay me enough to do that!

Hey, imac, glad you're blogging again! :)

Denise said...

Great photos of some very beautiful ships. My spirit would be willing to climb up those masts, what an incredible view they would have. My body however would keep my feet firmly planted on the deck but I would still enjoy the view looking up.

Good to have you back. Bit confused, as I was expecting to see some bagpipes and tartan photos! Are they going to appear this week? Good selection of ship pictures though. Gail & I are off on holiday this week. We're headed for Dubai again. So expect to see some exotic photos appearing soon, especially with all the new stuff going on there at the moment.

The masts seem so complex! I do not have to courage to climb though! Beautiful images as always.

Nice work imac and the ships are most impressive!

When I was a kid I loved to read the stories of battles between sailing ships and those of the pirates in those years long ago. Your post brings back those memories of hours spent reading. I didn't know it then by one of my great-great grandfathers was a sailor as was his dad and one brother. Both were killed in shipwrecks so g-g granddad gave up sailing and became a farmer.

Lovely post imac, glad to see your back to posting!

Wonderful photos of the majestic tall ships, Imac. Great shots.

Welcome back to more regular blogging! I look forward to your photography and humour!

I loved them!! Shall we trade a couple of hundred pictures? I captured them in Bergen. And what a party that was...

Dick said...

They have been here to but your pictures are much better, nice work

What beautiful tall ships! We have a town here on Cape Cod named "Falmouth" (certainly named after it's UK predecessor)!

Yen said...

Very nice photos! I like the last shot the most:) I'd like to et a ride on that!

Mine is up too, HERE. If you get a chance;)

Tall ships are my favourites. They remind me of the days that my husband and I went to see them in Amsterdam. They are so beautiful.I am the daughter of a sailor and my husband was one for a short period.

Carver said...

Gorgeous shots of the tall ships. They are very romantic looking to me.

Craver Vii said...

I wonder what it takes to get out there and work those ships. If I ever got a chance to be a passenger, I would love to try it! Thanks for the eyefull of magnificent ships!

Yeh, I'm so glad you're back!!! So glad you posted this! We took the kids there years ago, I can't remember exactly what was going on, but there was some type of anniversary or big display of all the Tall Ships...darn the old memory...it was probably 20 years ago or so? Does it ring a bell or anything about what I'm talking about or trying to remember? It was wonderful, and we were able to walk on some of the ships! Wow, I'll have to look for the old pictures! What a Great Post!!! So glad to showed these pictures and wrote about it!!!!Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Beautiful ships. They look more like the souvenir ones we get from the gift shop.
