Stone and Sail

Catching up again. *sigh* Where do the weeks go?

I had too much choice for this prompt - so many photos of stone buildings and architectural details of stone. So I decided to go for a natural structure - a stone arch on the coast between the Tyne and the Wear. I took this photo when I paused on the way to Sunderland, one day in July.

The same day and the reason I was going to Sunderland - the Tall Ships came to the Wear. Obviously, their sails are furled at the quayside. The nearer one is the Polish tall ship, the Fryderyk Chopin. The one beyond it, next the the quay itself, is the Norwegian Sørlandet.
I don't remember the name of the other one, around the corner, although that is the one whose sails you can see most clearly in this picture.


I love tall ships. I used to live ten minutes from the Star of India, supposedly the oldest sailing ship still being used. When the sails were occasionally unfurled it was a thrilling sight.
Star of India was built in my home town here on the small island!!
So cool! Wooooo hoooo!
They are beautiful. And when they left to race to Denmark, they were really impressive.
Great choices! I love the tall ships. They're always worth a trip to see them. Hmmm stone - I can do stone, we have a lot of rocks here! LOL
They are beautiful.

Excellent! I hoped someone would have tall ships!
It had to be. I just wish I had a photo of them under sail, but I didn't take any.
Both are great choices and awesome pics! I always feel happy when I can see a Tallship, and more than one? Bliss! xD
They are really impressive.
Thank you.
