The simple kind

The simple kind

Ready to go!

Ready to go

As far as you can take me

As far as they can take me!

Or maybe something grander?  (Edited by Viveka Gustafson)

With a little more style

With a bit more style
And panache!

And oozing panache!

Some elegant wood carving

Perhaps some elegant wood carving

And a figurehead to charm the world

And a figurehead fit to face the world!

Jake has asked the question this week- how do you like to travel?  You might have noticed that I’m very partial to boats- all shapes and sizes.  How about you? The last five shots were taken when the Tall Ships Race came to Hartlepool in 2010.  My lovely friend Viveka admired them but it wasn’t a bright day and one of them needed a hint of brightening up.  She was kind enough to do it for me, unasked.  Isn’t that what friends are for? I think my husband may have taken some of the Tall Ships.  My memory’s not so good these days! But I do remember to join Jake in his Sunday Post challenge whenever I can.  The subject this week is Transport.  Come take a look!



  1. Not only me that is mad about boats, vessels and ships … magnificent photos, Jo.
    Even if I enjoyed work at sea … I’m not too keen to use it my own transport. *smile


    1. I’m Sunday afternoon tired, ironing still to do, and the clouds have blown in, so my plan to check out the “monkey trail” on the Headland this afternoon will have to keep for another day. But returning to my laptop for 5 minutes, with a coffee, you’ve made me smile, Paula 🙂 Thank you!


  2. These are beauties, Jo. I too love the waterways and being transported back in time when that was the only way to cross oceans. Great selection!


  3. bellissima quella barca con l’antico cassero in legno…le polene sono molto stilizzate
    quante barche sembrano giochi per bambini, immagino ti piacerebbe poterci giocare1 🙂
