At least once a year, our beautiful Star of India sets out to sea for the day, making her the oldest active ship of any kind in the world. She
is sailed and maintained by a volunteer crew that trains year-round, keeping not only the ship but also the skills to sail her, alive. Having no
engines, there are two tugs on the other side of her pushing her to the dock. If you look closely, you might see a couple of the crew working up
high in the masts on the sails. Others wait on deck for her to dock to get up in the riggings to make her ship shape before putting her to bed.
Taken just after sunset, and with a bit of light rain, the sky took on an eerie glow. She's a beautiful remembrance of more elegant times.
