On Board the Vespucci - 1 of 2

Amerigo Vespucci, training sail ship, port of Livorno
If you like sail ships, every visit on board the “Amerigo Vespucci” is a real joy for the eyes, with your attention focused on a myriad of fascinating and often mysterious details.

Even a quick tour usually results in hundreds of photos, most of them destined to oblivion. I have just “rescued” a few pictures and I hope you will appreciate them.

VP, please rescue some more of your images from the Amerigo Vespucci. Love the detail you present here. I can just imagine a sailor working the bits of rope to form these great holders and tools. On one level, so simple, but also so ingenious and skilled.

Yes thank you. I'm almost disappointed that this is 1 of 2 and not 1 of 10...

I would gladly show more photos, but it is always emabarassing when you don't know what you are posting and this happens a lot with pictures taken on board a sail ship!

You don't have to know everything, VP. These mysterious bits and pieces make us want to see more.
Anything made of wood is beautiful.
