The story behind this image

It was a very foggy day when my family and I took a boat trip from Morston Quay on the Norfolk coast to go and see the grey seals at Blakeney.

The seals were nice enough, but what interested me the most was the trip in the small boat out to Blakeney and back, passing the ghostly forms of sailing boats and other craft in Blakeney harbour.

This particular boat, with its red sails and traditional wooden construction, really caught my eye as we motored past.

A very graceful craft, caught here disappearing into the mist behind us.
