As most of you know,
our Sissy, Kat,
is a
tall ship sailor.

This past weekend
marked the end of their season
The Dana Point Tall Ships Festival.

And as usual,
she took so many incredible photos,
it was hard for us to choose the ones
we wanted to post.

She even got to light the cannon -
now those kind of boomers
would probably make our toenails shiver!!

The ship is back at the docks
and cleaned for the Winter.

And she is looking
for another place to hang around.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh no! Please don't show any more of those photos. Gail says they make her so envious of Kat that she's thinking of running away to sea. And I would not like that one little bit!

Thanks for being supportive of me, you are a good person. I'm excited about the tutorial, hope it helps people who wants to make socks. Keep your fingers crossed that my old camera holds out.

Well now. Looks like I need to get some of those earphone-thingys to protect me from the booms where I live! You know how I HATE loud noises. Roo Roo, Stuart

Hi Lynn,
I think you should talk about your cows!!! We love cows!! When Joker and I use to walk 5 niles aday we would walk by a place that had 3 cows and we would take a carrot cut up in three parts for the cows!! Those cows looked for us each morning!! When they saw us coming they would get so excited, they would run to the gate that we walked by to get their pieces of carrot!!! We- Joker and I just loved seeing and talking with them each morning!! Joker loved all animals so much!!
