Tall ship, Enterprize (5)


Of course, not all tall ship lovers, are lovers of the pitch and roll of onboard life. Some are landlubbers.


The organgrinder was probably more interested in the music, but was on hand to provide colour and atmosphere. The large fella, well he concentrated on these pinthings, once we were safely tied up once again. Any idea what the pins are for?

Enjoying the photo essay, Julie. The "belaying pins" serve the same purpose as cleats (securing ropes).
