Stromness had another "tall ship" calling into the harbour last week. This one was the "George Stage". The weather was awful the day it left and too windy to set sail, sadly. The crew, which included trainees, had come ashore during the folk festival. I was amazed to see them returning to the ship in the harbour here on small boats. Even in the safety of the harbour I wouldn't want to be THAT close to the water on a choppy day!
However the day before the sun had shone and the rigging looked wonderful......
Looks like someone is on their way up to the crow's nest. Or maybe trying to untangle all that "knitting"!
