Gripsholm on its final day before decommissioning in 1975. I purposely missed the ship in order to get this shot.
This was something strictly against the rules. The captain knew what I was doing but turned a blind eye.

I was alowed to board the ship at sea returning on the tender that collected the pilot.
I received a mild dressing down from the captain for this.

If only they could talk. These deck chairs have traveled the seven seas and seen it all.
