Il y a des bateaux accrochés ainsi dans les églises en Bretagne.
Philine: Oui, j'ai vu des bateaux accrochés ainsi en Bretagne. Merci bien, Martine!
That's really wonderful!
Philine: Many thanks, Elizabeth! You see often such hanging ships in northern Germany, also in churches.

I get the feeling it might have been there for a long time Philine
Philine: You might be right, an old seafarer nation is living here. Many thanks, Chris!

A place with a seafaring tradition.
Philine: You are an early bird - yes, we are in Hamburg - many thanks, Chad, and a good travelling!
She's a beauty, Philine, especially against that ornate ceiling,
Philine: The old restaurant was rather dark - we had here a lunch - heel bedankt, Ginnie!

That is wonderful to have that at the ceiling. It looks like the whole restaurant is in nautical style. I like the ceiling as well.
Philine: Yes, the whole restaurant is in a nautical style according to its name "Schifferbörse", very typical for Hamburg. Heel bedankt, Astrid, and enjoy your weekend in these summerdays!

At the first moment, I thought that it was in the Bavo church, Haarlem/NL. A ship is hanging from the ceiling there and it would have perfectly suited to the rest of this week. Have you been there, Philine?
This ship is very beautiful, I guess I would forget to eat, while watching it...
Philine: Yes, I know St. Bavo Kerk in beautiful Haarlem, and I often saw such ships hanging from the ceiling in Dutch churches like Alkmaar ... Heel bedankt, Salima, en geniet vasn deze zomerdagen!
Must be a seafood restaurant.
Philine: Yes, you could order seefood, but other meals are also available. Many thanks, Mary!

I am wondering whether the replace the holding ropes very often.
Philine: A good question, Louis, I don't know, regular dusting might be necesary, too. Heel bedankt!
A fine model but I wouldn't want it hanging over my head Philine grin
Philine: I understand you, usually the ships are hanging quite high above our heads, esp. in churches.
It is a beauty Philine.
A nice bit of restaurant decor!
