Ahoy matey!

 

A few things I spotted along the coast road yesterday. Firstly I have to say driving home along the coast road has to be one of life's simple pleasures, the sun, the sea, the sand and if you are lucky a tall mast sailing ship on the horizon. The STS Leeuwin II (Sail Training Ship) operated by non profit organization Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation offers training voyages along the WA coast. Unfortunately this was as close as I could get, would have loved to see it close up just out from Fremantle harbour.. one day..

Despite the sign below.. Share, Enjoy, Respect plus shark fin :) there are always surfers out there waiting for that perfect wave to ride..

The view looking down the coast to Fremantle Harbour above and below the Cottesloe Sundial, I did a quick time check and either my watch was out by five minutes or the sun was running late :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  1. What a sight to see out there on that very blue water. That is the kind of sailing ship that is a very rare thing to see up this way. Beautiful drive. It looks like you live in paradise.

  7. Sculptures at the beach are beautiful. That is a nice ship floating by that you captured. There is always something to do and see down on your beaches.

  8. I can see why you drive the coast road. Seeing the STS Leeuwin II is a real treat. May she continue to successfully sail.

  9. Oh that ship would look like fun to be on. But in reality a lot of work.

  10. Dearest Grace,
    You were very lucky for catching such a majestic tall mast sailing ship!
    Wondering where the name Leeuwin came from as it is Dutch for Lioness...
    Hugs,

  12. Quite a good photo of the ship. I like the subtle shark warning. Sundials in non daylight saving states became confused and it will take them a little time to adjust to not adjusting.

  25. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
