I think I might have sent a partial comment. Here goes another try....
The visit was fantastic. I climbed every part of her rigging, examining everything. In retrospect, it seems only yesterday....
The food and drink were first class.

One night, we returned to the schooner and found her with her bow away from the wharf, being held by one stern line and a spring line. We presumed some dimwitted individual must have slipped the bow lines. Lucky for us we arrived when we did. The current was extreme. Another memorable time!
