Ketch is the fancy name for a sailing vessel that has two masts.
Not too impressive while docked or on a mooring as this one is.
But when the the sails are up and they are billowing in the wind, a ketch is a beautiful thing indeed.
So quietly they glide over the water - reminiscent of days gone by when only sails were around.
Love those old boats, or Tall Ships, as they are called.
And a ketch is a mini version of those beauties that we get a glimpse of when we visit the ocean.
