    that is one fine ship!

    I’ve been to Le Havre, but a more modern version. . . only saw ferries

    ships like that are so beautiful

    thanks for the reminder!

      I love those old wooden vessels; a lot of fine craftsmanship went
      into their making. As for Le Havre, I’ve never been, but do know of
      it, as it is often mentioned on ancestry sites as a major point of
      departure for those who emigrated to this side of the pond back
      in the day.
