Boatloads

Lodoletta, boat, LivornoI took a lot of pictures in the days of the 27th TAN, last April. I am not sure about what these people were doing but the name of the boat, “Lodoletta”, is the title of a minor opera of Pietro Mascagni.Navy inflatable boat, LivornoSeamen on an inflatable boat for routine trips from the “Porto Mediceo” to the “Accademia Navale”.Tugboat Alfredo NeriDuring a practical lesson around the port, a boatload of students of the Nautical Institute “Alfredo Cappellini” can have a close look at the tug “Alfredo Neri”.

I think I know why you chose these photos today. Is it still hot? We have cold weather and still wear jackets and sweatshirts most of the time.

I always love your ship/water shots! That second one is especially nice! And I like the hands-on training provided by the Nautical Institute.

Gunn said...

"Tug or no tug" that is the question. One day I will post a photo about that. Anyway, enjoy your holiday both of you.

Many boat loads for sure. I like the 'Lodoletts' and would like to have a boate like that.
Super shots. MB

I love all the boats you show us from Livorno. I especially like the first one today. They don't look like your typical sailors.

Lois said...

I love the color and the way the water looks in the first two pictures!

So different, the boats.
I would love to be in any or all of them.
