The 49 participants in this year's Tall Ships Race have been in Lisbon for the last four days. Going down to the harbor was like stepping back in time. It's one thing to see one or two of these beautiful ships tied up somewhere, but to find so many in one place is another thing entirely.
Here, the cross on the sail of the Portuguese ship, Sagres, makes a nice foreground for the Cristo Rei statue on the other side of the Tagus.
The ships paraded under the 25 April bridge this afternoon, and now many of them are back in Tamariz Bay, just below the house.
They'll depart tomorrow for the next leg of the race.
