How lucky you were to be able to get so close. Dianne
Hi Dianne - it's been great to have all these ships here in the harbor for most of a week. I usually stay away from the public tour days with really long lines, but chanced it right at the end of the day to see this one. The Bluenose II is a beauty !
The funny thing is, Bits, your shots are much better than the ones on the web page.
why Thanks n1w ! I unknowingly timed it just right to be in the last group to board for a little topside tour, so it nicely emptied out for me. The skies weren't so cooperative for a nice cheery blue sky shot, though.
And what a beautiful Canadian she is. I have seen her in Victoria Harbour BC as well as Lunenburg Nova Scotia - her home. Thanks for sharing BnP
Yep, there's our baby! Did you know about her sistership the Brownnose? Nowhere near as fast or nice but still somehow gets all the good gigs.
LOL, Guy - I knew there was a line like that waiting to happen!
Thanks Cal! I've got a few more to post. Just going to spread them out a little tiny bit.
It makes my heart swell with patriotic pride, that does! She's a beauty all right.
Super series of shots, **bitsy*!
Ah, Guy. That reminds me of reindeer.
Did you ever hear about Albert the brown-nosed reindeer? He used to fly just behind Rudolph. He could fly just as fast as Rudolph; he just couldn't stop quite as fast.
Thank-you for your Dignity and Pride in your National Tallship Nawitka - it's sure deserving of it's country's pride!
And LOLOL, Who and Guy - now is this the kind of conversation your dignified national symbol merits? ;)
Why aye man! Buffoonery is our national pastime so it is very befitting.
hmmmm, you Canadian or Geordie, eh??
