All that is left for most windjammer guests to do is to enjoy the morning and pack. Logic would dictate that the parade be on Saturday until one realizes many windjammer cruises turn over on Saturday. So it’s a quiet lovely final morning for the crews and those up early. And early it is. This shot was taken before six. Already people were on deck with coffee cups in hand and unfortunately some cigarettes. The cooks were busy. We know that because we could smell the smoke form wood stoves. Many of these windjammers date back to the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries. Dated amenities provide the charm and romance of a windjammer cruise. Their presence is ample charm and romance for us.
