The real reason for going there was to take some pics of
a big sail ship "The Star of India."I don't know anything about ships, but I like to look at the big sails and everything breathes history. It is also a Maritime museum
It hardly ever happens when I look up, but in taking this pic, I got slightly dizzy - sooo high!
The Star of India is the oldest ship that "still sails regularly and is the oldest iron hulled merchant ship still floating."
This is ship was built in 1863 and called Euterpe. She first sailed from England to India.
(hard to take pics during the day without anyone around!)
In 1900 this ship was registered to the USA, and was used for catching and canning salmon.
In 1906 the Euterpe had her name changed to Star of India. and stayed in business till 1923. By then steam ships had taken over. It's me standing in front
A last look at the masts with hubby sitting in front on the boardwalk.
