Jumble Sail.....

I'm not sure what attracts me to this picture so much, I think it's because it looks as if some giant hands have scooped up an assortment of various yachts and sailing vessels and just 'dropped' them into the harbour.  To me there seems to be no order, but in fact I'm sure all concerned know exactly what's what, I understand that pens at the marina are extremely costly, and in very short supply these days, in fact if you are trying to sell a boat unless it comes with a pen, you don't have buckley's!!
Thank you so much for all the good wishes about my eye, the patch is off and all is well except for the occasional urge to yarrrr!

  1. This is a good one, Grace. I thought a pirate like you would be abreast of all oceangoing issues. I sure would hate to be tasked with moving one of those vessels.

  3. It looks so random!! But maybe less so when you count up the millions of bucks represented there!

    Have a great day!

  14. I would love to be there among those boats... blue skies, gentle wind, and the clanging of the halyards.

  24. Of course the boats must be all lined up but you managed to get an amazing angle which might fool anyone! :-)
