Gloucester ‘Tall Ships’

Went to Gloucester docks this week-end to see the ‘Tall Ships‘.  Visited the ‘Matthew‘, a replica of the first English ship to cross the Atlantic (John Cabot, 1497).  I first saw it 15 years ago in Newfoundland, when it re-enacted the crossing for the 500th anniversary.

The Matthew and John Cabot and his son, Sebastian, both figure in my novel, ‘The Frozen D ream’.SAMSUNG DIGIMAX 420
