Sail 2015

Last week we had Sail In on Wednesday and Sail Out on Sunday in Amsterdam (capital of The Netherlands, for who has no idea), the biggest nautical event in the world. 
I'm not particular fond of boats (sea sickness may have something to do with that), although my father was a sailor before he got children, and made yachts for the rich and famous later in his life, but Tall Ships really impress me. 
So I took pictures!

  1. These are breathtaking ships. I would love seeing so many together. I like the idea that so many of them have festive banners flying because it looks so festive. I saw your link at Stacey's Creative Inspirations Link Party.
