Lunch Break

Or why I love working by the waterfront...

This is the Pallada, a tall ship, crewed by Marine College cadets. Built in Gdansk, Poland, in 1989, her home port is now Vladivostok, Russia. She is currently owned by Dalryba, a conglomerate of fishing companies and offers training to foregin marine-college cadets, according to the website--which sounds like it's not part of the Russian navy, but more likely for merchant marine colleges.

Anyway, I walked by her at lunch time. She's pretty impressive even with her sails furled.
