Tuesday-PC-Wk201-Yard


~~~~~~

yard

*  a unit of linear measure equal to 3 feet (0.9144 metre).
*  a cylindrical spar, tapering to each end,
slung across a ship’s mast for a
sail to hang from.

Several images of our back yard….

…which has nothing to do linear measurement…

 

 

…unless we wanted to calculate the area

of our yard in square yards.

I have often heard the phrase,

When the sun came over the yard arm.

 

Until, today I had never quite known what it meant.

However, Google tells me that the horizontal arms

are called yards from which sails are hung.
