New life for the sinking ship


Those who have followed this blog for a while know that this is the famous sinking ship. It's been half-sunk for years. But a few months ago, it really did begin to sink! So, the powers-that-be arranged to have it bailed out and fixed up and now it has been transformed into its former glory - it is sinking, but not really, in Lake Sumter.

What a wonderful capture, Lowell! I don't know the story of the ship, but I do know a fantastic photo when I see it!! Love the colors reflected on the water!

Really!! Is this the ship that was going down at the end of the pier? So happy it's been rescued and is getting ready to sink all over again haha!. Would it be usable now for anything Lowell, or still for 'just looking'?

I look at my window here and I only see grey sky, kind of rainy day...foggy.Then everything is "light "for the beauty image in your blog.
It makes a difference, turn out my day with positivism!
Thanks so much!
Love your picture!
