I had a meeting up in Forest Rd, West Hobart the other day. As I was getting out of the car I noticed sails on the river - arriving for the Tall Ships Festival. Exactly one week later I was back in Forest Rd for another meeting, and there they were again - going upriver to salute the Governor at Queens Domain before doing a u-turn and heading out again, on their way to Sydney for the celebration of the navy’s centenary. Elf and I and the boys did go to have a close up look at them while they were in port, but I didn’t take the camera. So I have pinched the pic below from Leigh Winburn © The Mercury. (Probably a little better than I would have taken myself).
