Photographer's Note

An image for Thomas (mjdundee).
Image taken 2009 from Skepsbron, the harbour road at Gamla Stan. The boat in the foreground is Sea Cloud II.
The boat in the background is the same as the one in the recent posting by Thomas. It is the "af Chapman & Skeppsholmen Youth Hostel".
" 'Sea Cloud II' was christened in 2001 as a modern-day sister to the renowned 'Sea Cloud.' Cruising in northern Europe and the Mediterranean, she recalls a bygone era with her 32,000 square feet of hand-set sails, yet boasts every modern comfort and amenity for her privileged guests."

"The af Chapman & Skeppsholmen Youth Hostel occupies a three-masted sailing ship that is permanently moored on Skeppsholmen, an island near the city center. The ship, which entered service as the Dunboyne in 1888, once carried passengers between Ireland and Australia. It was a Swedish Navy barracks ship during World War II and has been an STF youth hostel since 1949."

A closer view of the youth hostel is posted as a workshop.
