Too late fair maiden. I'm off to fall on my sgian-dubh; and only this because I can't spell samurai.

What a collection of tall ships, dear Amelia! If there were not the colorful flags, one might think it's a pic from the past! You present a fantastic series of those fascinating sailors - I've seen many of them here in Hamburg at Harbours birthday

Greetings, Klaus

Yes Haggs, it was very busy with 74 ships in the race and numerous smaller craft constantly moving in and out of the harbour. It's just a pity that th weather was not so good!

Cheers, Amelia

Good morning Zbynda, and thank you. Yes there is lots of detail full size, but the photo is just a little bit 'cluttered' :)

Greetings to Prague from Tananger, Amelia

Hello Hubs, it was far more impressive than the photo shows, and of course I didn't get all the ships in here. What an exciting 4 days it was in Stavanger for the Tall Ships Race :))

Many thanks for that link dear Klaus, and you have an exciting photo with better weather too. The weather was not so good for the 4 days here, although there was a glimmer of sunshine at times. The sun only came at last when the Tall Ships were leaving to go on to the final stage of the race to Sweden.

Warm wishes, Amelia
