This is the Schooner "Ardelle". I went on an evening sail on the Ardelle one night, a few weeks ago, after work. What a great way to end a stressful work day!

The man in the blue t-shirt, Harold Burnham, is the builder/owner/Captain of the Ardelle.
When he was raising the sails, I thought of the lyrics to "Sloop John B". But in this case, "going home" to me that night meant going back out onto the ocean, where I was always at home in my Dad's sailboat... :-)

Sloop John B

"So hoist up the John B's sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home"

What a nice way to spend an evening and the shot is perfect for the lyrics to that song.

The mast rings are impressive! We had them on my Dad's Cape Cod Cat Boat but they weren't this big!
