This morning’s walk produced a surprise—a “tall ship” in the harbor, towering over the outboards and the lobster boats. It was a perfectly clear morning with barely a breath of breeze, and I walked out to the end of a jetty to get a good look as the masted vessel rode at anchor. With my time in Stonington drawing to a close, I’m going to take in as many harbor and boat scenes as possible.
There’s a “tall ship” anchored in Stonington’s harbor today. It towers over the other vessels, and gives rise to thoughts of men ‘o war and the old days of wind-powered wooden navies and sailing craft.
All boats are cool, but there’s something especially graceful about sailboats.
