just passing through

I made a brief excursion to the railroad crossing at Cooke Rd in north Columbus to wave at Nickel Plate 765 as she passed through on Monday.

I had to find a way to climb the mast to re-attach the lower shroud- which had  tumbled to the deck during my previous sail due to a failed cotter pin. Behold my solution. I now understand why sailors in the days of old used to say, " keep one hand for yourself and one for the ship."
