HM Bark Endeavour

Today after our haircuts at Glenelg J and I went over to Port Adelaide to see the sailing ships that were in, The one I most wanted to see was the replica of Cooks ship the Endeavour we last saw her in Whitby a few years ago, and here she was doing a circumnavigation of Australia.
A lovely day, and a lovely ship.
We didnt go on board, much as I would have liked to as she was full of school children and there was a long wait. I sat and sketched some of her rigging and just enjoyed looking at her.
Such small ships that sailed around the world and into uncharted seas.
Also in was the One and All, also built here in Australia and now sadly running out of funding. John has sailed on her a couple of times. We signed the petition so it will be interesting to see what comes of it. She has been used as a training ship.
