looking out on the horizon

Over the last couple of days, the Galveston Historical Foundation has been conducting sea trials and day sails for the tall ship Elissa. After getting battered by Hurricane Ike six months ago, the restored 1877 square rigger is looking great and appears to be back to its pre-Ike elegance. The dock where Elissa is moored is pretty beaten up, but that hasn't seemed to deter the volunteer crew and foundation members who are great stewards of this historic vessel. The photo above was taken of a crew member on Monday afternoon's sail.

  1. Why am I not surprised that this is the first one from the sailing that you posted? Nice environmental portrait. Based upon watching him on the cruise, I think you captured the essence of this person. Nice job.
