Tacoma Schooner Rendevouz

23 April 2010:
The Schooner Kia Ora 1980 65 feet
My twin Jean joins me to celebrate our 67 birthday. While Shatoosh and Pashmina did not get to be here, we couldn't miss the opportunity to check out a few nautical oldies and goodies.

The Schooner Zodiac 1924 160 ft.

Wooden balls rather than hoops to haul up the sails.

The Schooner Martha 1907 84 ft

The Schooner W.N. Ragland 1913 101 ft.

Below decks several berths had curved elephant tusks to adorn the edges.

Such beautifully mantained vessels and it added a special touch for our birthday celebrations.
