On the Sea.

 This is an amazing old lighthouse that has the prows of different boats sticking out from it. Until you get up close to it to see what they are, the whole structure looks most odd!
 Here is a rather fanciful painting of it in our hotel. There are actually a pair of them on the foreshore.

               Some of the dozens of ropes needed to raise and lower the sails on the Sea Cloud 2.
Doesn't she look wonderful, well one of the masts does anyway! It's such a mammoth job to get them all up, that we only saw all sails hoisted once in the 2 weeks that we were on board.
