Sea-Serpent in Nantucket!!!

 Post Card of the Sea Serpent - NHA

Back in 1937 a sea-serpent landed on this quiet New England island and the Nantucket Historical Association has the pictures to prove it. The NHA recently joined Flickr Commons so it you want the rest of the story, make sure that you head over there.

FotoFriday: Rare Australian Ferry Duck Giving Berth!

Australia Day Duck Ferry by Bryan Heywood from Australian Maritime Museum on Flickr

Bryan Heywood captured this photo of the rare Australian Ferry Duck. If you look closely, you’ll see the even rarer occurrence of the “berthing” process, which is confirmed by the expression of relief on the duck’s face, being caught on film .

The Australian National Maritime Museum is one of the few maritime museums that has a great blog and an active Flickr account.

Cruising Back from Vacation

DSC_0150

We’ve been away on a family vacation in Florida, so that explains the lack of posts over the past week. But I can’t help but I can’t help keeping a lookout for all things maritime. On Saturday, Buppa (75), Luke (5) and I (somewhere in between) went to the Zephyrhills 35th Annual Winter AutoFest where there was a 1935 Plymouth Coupe in the Collector Car Auction which had these cool hood and grill ornaments.
