Classic Week: Contrasts

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved

The 3-masted Tall Ship, known as a barkentine, is called the Palinuro, photographed in port for the recent Classic Week, where she took part in the Tall Ships race. She was built in France in 1934 and is owned by the Italian navy.

She is, as you see, quite a contrast to the modern cruise liner, Sinfonia.

In the smaller photo, you see H.S.H.Prince Albert II leaving the Palinuro after a private visit.

Wow Jilly, what great photos, both the contrast shot and the prince!

WOW - timing is everything! Did you speak with HSH Prince Albert II?
Minnesota Governor Pawlenty will speak at our Eagan Rotary club today - he just started his 2012 presidential campaign - that will be my brush with a VIP.

The Palinuro is truly beautiful.

Jilly, did you get to go on board or how close were you?

What a contrast of old vs. new!
