    It remind’s me of a little boat I once had as a child, and how I used
    to play with it in the bath tub…?

  • Larry, funny that……I used to play with one like that too ! Do you think this is why we both have a love of boats………..?

    Oh fabulous. I assume it’s a steamer with a stack like that.

  • Many thanks Colin – yes, definitely a steamer – it was puffing away but it doesn’t really show up in the photo.

  • Susie, I do appreciate your kind comments. I had to tweak this one, it just had to be made to look like a toy boat !

    Maybe we new each other in a past life…?
    Maybe the things we did in our childhood influenced us when we were growing up…?
    Maybe ….. Who knows….?
    All I know is that I have it in my blood……
    And it makes me happy whenever I’m around them.

  • Good one Larry……..!

    Great capture of a little whistle blower Roy.

  • Many thanks Myra – I love these old boats. This is like the kiddies story book one, ’ Little Toot.’
