Curiosity Club on Tall Ships

Well, I missed seeing the tall ships in person, but I did make it to the Curiosity Club talk about life on the crew of a tall ship. The talk was projected on a hunk of sailcloth that was rigged up as a screen! We practiced tying knots, learned about traditional tools of a sailor, and deciphered the meanings of maritime tattoos. Fun stuff.


  1. That sounds like a fun place and an entertaining event. I like how your sketches and notes tell the story of the evening. I really like your knot, too.

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Katura! I couldn't make it out and so missed a great opportunity, dang it all. Were you ready to go on an sailing adventure after your visit?

  3. Thanks, you two! I was very glad to be a landlubber after the talk, actually--the stories of storms at sea were a little too death-defying for my taste. :)
