Surprise at sunset

The name of this ship is the HMS Surprise and is one of six ships that are part of the Maritime Museum. It is a replica of an 18th century Royal Navy frigate and I was surprised to learn that it was used in the movie Master and Commander. Click here for a full photo of the ship with its sails up and information about the museum.

Thanks Kris, Tanty & Lisi! Tanty, sorry, I have no idea why it is called Surprise or even what the HMS stands for!
