And even now it's the contrast between the ship and the view which captures the eye. We had a Captain Cook replica moor at Weymouth, on the Dorset coast of England, a few years ago. I'm wondering if this is the same one and it's re-created the journey or whether there are lots of Endeavours around the world.
What a beautiful sight with the CBD as a backdrop.
Yes indeed! What a treasure that ship is..
Very nice Joe.
Fantastic! We went on the tour of this ship when we visit Sydney 4 years ago. I can so remember how cramped it was below decks. Great to see it in action!!!!!
Can you imagine the adventure it was travelling to the unknown?The view may be different, but it is beautiful anyway. :)
Yes a very different sight they would have had. Lovely composition Joe
I love seeing these old sailing ships that hark back to a distant time! Fabulous photo Sir Joe of Melbourne :^)
That must have been a sight to see. I love tall ships.
Hi Mr and Mrs J. The picture is actually of the Tall Ship Enterprize, the Ship that is credited with bringing the first white people to found the settlement that became known as Melbourne. Enterprize is based in Docklands and you can book on sails around Port Phillip Bay and beyond.
