Nice photo's Jan, do you know the name of the sailing vessel back along the quay? She looks very similar to the UK registered brig ASTRID.

Bob, this is the tall ship ONE AND ALL, and I will post the story on Tall Ships as soon as I have a moment.
She has a permanent berth in Adelaide and this particular day there was a celebration of her 20 years fixed mooring place on that quay side, and guess what: I happened to be there on that particular day and the associated beer festival was quite nice too.....
Which hotel you ask me? I cannot remember........just be happy I remembered the name of the ship.....
