    Light rain here. It looks as if I live in a jungle clearing, can't wait till my grass 'kilt' comes back from the cleaners.

    Ooops, I am still downloading mine, will wait until tomorrow to pop it up. It is of the 1885 ship Wavertree, a great old Cape Horner. Southampton made for a Liverpool company who owned her. She was dis-masted in a Cape Horn storm in 1910 and ended up as a barge in Buenos Aires. Some guy found her poor old body (still working as a barge I think) in 1966 and brought her to NYC, she was helped into the harbour by a sister ship, the Allerton. She sits at Southstreet Seaport and although they have re-masted her she needs a lot of work on her 'tween' area and general HELP!!!! They got a grant for 4 MILLION DOLLARS to restore her, Uni of Wisconsin are working on parts and various other ship restoration places. When she is done she will be part of the Southstreet Seaport Museum walk again and we can go on board once again. At last she can hold her head up high after being abandoned and left to die in a foreign land!!!. YAY

    Here she is. Can't wait for the restoration to be complete. You can see it says WAVERTREE in white on the black stripe.

    Wavertree was built at Southampton, England in 1885 for R.W. Leyland & Company of Liverpool, one of the last large sailing ships built of wrought iron. Today, she is the largest afloat. Wavertree was first employed to carry jute, used in making rope and burlap bags, between eastern India (now Bangladesh) and ... See MoreScotland. When less then two years old she entered the tramp trades, taking cargoes anywhere in the world she could find them. After sailing for a quarter century, she limped into the Falkland Islands in December 1910, having been dismasted off Cape Horn. Rather then re-rigging her, her owners sold her for use as a floating warehouse at Punta Arenas, Chile. She was converted into a sand barge at Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1947, and acquired by the South Street Seaport Museum in 1968.

    I have noticed on my frequent visits to canals the wives or girl friends do all the hard work, like opening lock gates, while the male just steers the boat

    Roni,
    Picture of the day comes under the category of 'Photography Fun'.
    However, I've deleted my contribution and will now take myself off to the naughty step.
    Have a nice day.
    Kevin

    Hopefully this may be considered more on-topic and interesting to many members? This photo, taken yesterday, shows the Chinese Pavilions at the Garden Festival Site, part of which is currently in the process of being refurbished.
