Happiness as Anarchy #89: Sailing Ships

There’s a part of me that wants to be a pirate, sailing the high seas and singing shanties on the waves. I’m not sure where it comes from – perhaps there is a fabulous sailor woman in my family tree somewhere. In any case, I do love sailing ships with all their ropes, masts and beautiful craftsmanship. The one in the picture was moored in the Gironde River near Bordeaux just downstream from where I lived two years ago. At the slightest invitation I would have leapt on board, never to be seen again.
