Six years of posting photos submitted by SoundBeacher and CosHarbour and never once did they have photos of the same destination/topic….until today. What are the odds? All I have to say is lucky us. Very lucky indeed.
Photos are self explanatory…First up SB, only because SB sent photos before Cos did!
The destination: The Eagle, the US Coast Guard ship in NYC next to the Intrepid.
The Barque Eagle was actually built by the Nazi’s in Germany

The Swab we know got to climb to the top of the rigging the other day.

What I love is that SB and CosH visited the the same venue yet each brought their own eye. Brilliant, and thanks.
Looks like we are in for a rainy Saturday. Enjoy nonetheless.
