A historic ship 'Caledonia' berthed at the Toronto waterfront

This is 'Caledonia'- a historic ship berthed on the Toronto waterfront. It was unfortunately not possible to get a better shot, especially as we were inside a moving bus. There was water on one side, and this lawn and a lot of quayside furniture landside. This boat is part of a display of a company selling yachts and boats. According to the firm's website, Caledonia is the largest tall –ship built in Canada in the past 100 years! This finely appointed square rigged 245 ft./74.68 m barquentine was meticulously rebuilt and refitted to current SOLAS specifications and Transport Canada safety standards for international trade in 2008. She can accommodate a complement of 95 including passengers and crew in any trade as a passenger, sail training or research vessel. (Toronto, Canada, Nov.2015)
