What a treat to see those boats--and to have your own!


You have to put flags on your boat too, Sallie ! You'll be like a princess visiting her distant domans...

nice boats all three of them. :)


this is so cool!!
love that OH!ZONE ship, she's a beauty


Those boats seem so small to have been able to make those long voyages! I see there is an empty rear seat in your boat. I'd like to be sitting in it and cruising around with you guys...

Made me laugh, Sallie, the Nina, the Pinta, and the...Oh!Zone.
My parents retired early and took my youngest brother, then a toddler, with them to a shrimp-fishing village in Mexico's Baja Peninsula. He attended kindergarten and Grade 1 there, and spent 6 months a year there until high school (Sept.-Oct. in Canada, 6 months in Baja, May-June in Canada).
When he was small, he came home from school one day and told Mom and Dad, "Cristóbal Colón discovered North America in three shrimp boats."


It would be very nice to explore those two replica boats if they ever allow it. Well, I most love the Oh!Zone and explore the possibilities around the area, eh? Nice photos Sallie. Hope you're having a grand time out there!


Sallie, I love your world, love being coastal! I only see those kinds of sail boats in Tall Ships Festival.

P.S. I did find some wildflowers last Sunday, kinda tired, so will be posting it this week! Thanks for your inspiration!


I don't think I ever knew the name of your boat. That's such a cool name! What a great life you have. Hope you have a great week!


The boats are fantastic. Great shots.

Dearest Sallie,
Oh, the replicas of the caravels Columbus sailed "Nina and the Pinta"♡♡♡ And it is a turing museum; it must be really great to see them first hand. And I love your boat "Zone"♬♬♬
Happy to see your wonderful day, my friend.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*


The blue of the sky is really stunning... I miss that truly brilliant blue, we seem to be stuck with grey at the moment



Beautiful photographs and beautiful ships. I am greeting

Beautiful, the three boats are only two of them. Oh, I didn't see the other, my fault. It is marvelous taking photos.


wirklich sehr gelungen die Nachbildung der Schiffe von DAMALS
LG vom katerchen der einen netten Dienstag wünscht


Did you tour one Sallie?
I've toured the replica boats at Jamestown that brought the English colonists. It sure gives you an idea of the small space. I couldn't imagine traveling that far with so many people in such a small space.
Amazing the fortitude of those people.
I checked the link and there's a page for interested crew members. I can't lift 70 lbs and stand for a long time - no summer job for me. :)

I learnt about these ships at school ! Great to see the replicas. We sometimes have the replica of The Endeavour, James Cook's ship, come sailing through here.
My post this week is about waterfronts too.
Have a wonderful week. I am joining you through Our World Tuesday.


Magnificent replicas, but I think I would prefer to tour in your boat.


Wow! That must be a cool sight!


How cool! And the sky and water are just beautiful!


cool to have the replicas there! and i like the name of your boat. :)


Beautiful pictures of the boats Sallie, this looks like a lovely place too.


It would be interesting to take a tour of the replica caravels. Sounds like another fun trip with your club! Thanks for sharing, have a great week!


interesting discovery. sounds like a fun-filled day.


lovely - it reminds me of the marina at Fleetwood.

Love the pictures Sallie, you are a great photographer! Wish I could have been on that trip!


Love those blue skies. What a way to travel.


Such fun photos! Boats are expensive these days.

Love those caravels!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Interesting indeed. Just have wikipedia-ed Christopher Columbus and you can find all the information there.
There are replicas of the 3 ships in quite a number of places around the World.
The water of your marina is magnificently crystal blue clear.


Magnificent boats and I am sure yours would be the most comfortable to travel in!


Oh, ohh, how I miss that blue free water!!
Thanks for it!
