Hi Paul, : )
Finally, I found out that the ship on the right in the third shot of the first post is Stad Amsterdam
has a white line along its hull and has no headfigure beneath its bowsprit.
I'm glad the weather is clear in Hartlepool allowing for no haze, hence lovely clear clouds against a blue sky behind the tall ships' masts which contribute for great photos.
I like all your shots of the Hartlpool Harbour, Mir
, the rest of the ships and the food stands. Never saw such big food-warmers before, especially in Europe. They can be easily found in eastern world but these are really interesting! : )) I wonder what the first container has inside, so redish and hot-looking.
Puplic seem happy to be part of the jolly Tall Ships events!!
Thanks for sharing,
