I can smell the ozone
The ship looks so very clean, and shipshape….!
Or is it a boat? Never sure!
It’s a ship. It has three masts and is ocean going.
A ship can carry a boat, but a boat can’t carry a ship (as my grandfather told me 60 years ago)
A great place to visit…
The school kids will be patrolling our village tomorrow evening…
Jo Brand’s definition " A ship has curtains at the portholes, a boat doesn’t"
Another answer is that a ship’s captain gets annoyed if you refer to his vessel as a boat, but a boat’s captain does not get annoyed if you refer to his vessel as a ship.
Those sails have an ‘about to cascade into voluptuousness’ feel about them, for me. Soon to be filled out and rounded by a warm & salty wind! A busty-looking pirate ship!
Just waxing lyrical!
@Stella “Archives: Fab photos & History” - wrong thread?
Well… it’s all coming from the Archive section of the daily Sud Ouest publication…
I’ve deleted history 'cos it’s obvious isn’t it… if it’s archived, it’s historical…
Ah - now I understand
Six super places to discover… lovely photos
this is a favourite
Oh, Stella! Thank you.
This is quite wonderful to watch. Crowds used to look so elegant. And les Maires look as though they all have the same tailor.
I greatly enjoyed this walk through 1900
