Wordless Wednesday – Almost!

Two days… two posts with the word almost in the title. Why? Because this post was supposed to be short and sweet … but I can’t place the photo without asking the questions. Why are we attracted to things that link us with the past? The sight of a tall ship… or a steam train… or a vintage car or a 200-year-old building. Do we want a simpler life? The romance of days gone by?

The tall ship Phoenix called into Arklow for a few days… we all took many snaps… and oohed-and-aahed. So cool, so special… so would like to be going along for the ride. Well, would we? Hard work… hoisting sails and trimming rigging for a headwind… and rough seas. Anyway… the ship stirred interests and dreams… so, I’ll leave you with the questions and maybe even the glimmer of your own dreams…

PS – For the Afrikaans folk, wherever you may be… remember Nellie will make an appearance later today… around noon, Irish time! The English folk could attempt using an online translator… but I don’t recommend you believe everything you read on the internet!

    Dis die mooiste foto’s, AJ. Ek dink ‘n mens is geneig om die verlede te verromantiseer en te dink dinge was beter. Op daai pragtige skippie sal jy my nie kry nie…die beknopte spasie, die seesiek…aikona!

      Ja nee kyk… van seesiek weet ek te veel!
      Ek het ‘n droom… om eendag ‘n groot kanaal boot te kry… en die Europeese kanaale te bevaar… hopelik sal ek nie watersiek ook raak nie!! 😉


I value your 'likes' and comments, even though I don't always reciprocate, I care. Thanks for making the effort! God Bless!!
