Ropes, fog and figureheads

My pair of trips to see the Tall Ships in harbour yesterday happened during two different weather systems:  the morning fog and the afternoon sunshine.  The crowds were impenetrable on both occasions so I never went further north than Bishop. Instead I hung at the Halifax Port end of things, which also happened to be where most of the really large ships were docked. Sails were folded, in the main, making the neck-crane pay off in the most extraordinary assortment of ropes: nets and rigging, knotted and taut.

There were also figureheads to be seen, both on bows and on display.  So here are a few images that I, at least, ahven’t seen bandied about in the promo material.
