That certainly gives on a sense of scale! Cute little sailboat. The penitentiary police have a sports club? Sounds like a good idea!

Sail on!

I don't know if I would have gotten that close!

That is a lovely perspective. And . . . the penitentiary police sports club? That is new.

Pretty!

What a tiny boat, in comparison!

Randy said...

That's a little close.

May the prison police enjoy the open seas and air for a while.
I like the PILOT and TUG written on the ship.

One of those juxtapositions you are a master at!

Sure is a big difference in size! I guess the sailors in the small boat know what they are doing but it looks like they are far too close to the ship.
