Towed


These three little boats were being towed across the harbour yesterday. Don't you think this would be fun, sitting in a little boat with someone else doing all the work?

You can see the difference in sky here to yesterday's photo, yet taken a couple of hours apart. I took this from the Bateau-Bus - the ferry that crosses the harbour. Sally (Sydney Daily Photo) Piero, Ben and I lunched at Stars n' Bars in the port, then grabbed the Bateau-Boat (1 euro) and crossed the harbour where we then climbed to the casino area and had refreshing cold drinks sitting outside the Café de Paris. Why weren't you all with us?

Are you trying to make me crazy or what? ;- ) It's bl...y cold here and your question isn't helping at all. I really wish I could be there.

P.S. Once again, very good photo.

That looks like fun. But, I think I would rather be on the Lionheart.

Interesting that they didn't put their sails down -- makes a towing a little more difficult.

Gosh, I don't know! Guess I had to take photos for this blog or something!
Glad you all are having such a nice visit!

Just when you have lost track of how much fun life can be your photo.
Thankyou and especially special knowing my friend Sally snaped it in her minds eye with you,

I'd rather be in one of those little sailing boat than on the LionHeart!!!
Enjoy your drinks!!

uselaine slaps the heel of her hand to her forhead - why? why? why? - and vows to begin an intensive training regime in preparation for the Monaco rocks and hills. 8^)

Steve - I'll bet they keep the sails up to remain as visible as possible to larger ship traffic while they're in the inner harbor, which would be the same reason for towing them in the first place - let's get the heck outta here!

I will be there soon, promise! I would love to do precisely that - lunch followed by a boat ride across the harbour - not too much walking in that is there!?
Monaco looks so beautiful. I can't wait.
