This is wonderful, Ginnie! I love the boat - and your point of view for the photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I always start smiling when I see laundry hanging out on boats. smile
It always amazes me how much rigging the sailors have to control.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Michael. And they still have to do the laundry!

That would be quite an experience, Ginnie, to sail on that
