Another Tall Ship!

August - Sue

A picture of a lovely old Tall Ship proudly displaying a Pelican as it’s figurehead on the prow - they usually have a fair maiden as figurehead so this is unusual. The ship is called The Pelican of London and was a lovely visitor to Bristol, clad in all its rigging.
Don’t you just love Tall Ships? This was new to Bristol harbour so i couldn’t resist taking this shot displaying a proud Pelican as its figurehead - did I say Pelican? Yes I did. You usually see a fair maiden fronting these ships so this was very unusual. It’s name is the ‘Pelican Of London’, sitting tall and proud in the water with all its rigging. Lovely!
