  3. Cute sketch. Of course this hot weather and visitors do take their toll. Seeing these schooners reminds me of the time I went to Boston for the tall ships. Amazing. I loved it.

    1. Naval Ship was invited to view the Sail of Schooners ~ social purpose ~ it is a gunnery ship I believe ~ It was a beautiful event and glad to have our Navy visit ~ No further information ~

  12. Your original haiku follows beautifully the theme established by the starting quotation! Something to meditate on for me! I know we'd love that Parade of Sail ... Looks like both you and your sweet Muse could use a quiet rest of the week! Enjoy it as I know you will.

  38. Great sunflowers..l they are just making an appearance here as we head into summer... And the photos of the boats are wonderful. I often go and watch the boats on the bay we live on but never think to photograph them... Maybe it is time to change that

  42. Oh, to have been there! Thanks for sharing the images. The quaint schooner must have been dwarfed among all the tall ships. I saw the Tall Ships Parade in New York Harbor in 2000. What a sight!
