The Pelican of London again

On a visit to Weymouth earlier this year we saw this tall ship and I wrote about it back then.

A couple of weeks ago we were in Weymouth again, and so, too, was the Pelican.

I’m tempted to say that winter work was going on aboard the ship although I only saw the one chap at work, high up in the rigging.

It wasn’t entirely clear what he was doing.

Rather him than me, stood up there on a rope. I love to see these tall ships but I’m aware of my limitations, both physically and mentally.

A bit later we had walked across to the other side of the Wey mouth and could see Pelican in all her glory.

What a great looking vessel she is.image010
