Kaskelot tall ship in Charlestown Harbour Cornwall England.

Sea Fever

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,And a grey mist on the sea’s face and a grey dawn breaking.I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tideIs a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

    This is eerie… I feel like some villager watching the bandits walk in to town. Did you really take this, and why do I feel like I am stepping into a past life?

    This was taken on Friday last week! Charlestown is used for many movies due to its victorian look.

    VICTORIAN???? Bloody hell – is that what you call it, it’s evoked something in me this image… I feel the threat of something ominous, and I am not like that. It’s wonderful.
