Smack Emma C. Berry:



The fishing sloop whose stern is showing (i.e., the Emma C. Berry) is one of the oldest surviving vessels of its type in the US and is designated as a national landmark. It was built in 1866 in Noank, CT, and is of a sail type known as a Noank smack, sloop smack or well smack. The well smack design has a pyramid-shaped well amidships with holes in the hull so that fresh water can flow through the well, thus keeping fish alive for transport to market.

Mount Warning from Cram's Farm.



Mount Warning or Wollumbin is a mountain in the Tweed Range in the Northern Rivers region of NSW, Australia formed from a volcanic plug of the now-extinct Tweed Volcano. It is famous for being the first place on mainland Australia to receive the sun’s rays each day. Apparently the climbing track has recently been closed. I count myself lucky having reached the summit twice when I was much younger and fitter.

Lovely photos everyone.

This is the classic Japanese bullet train Shinkansen at Tokyo Central Station. I've never seen cleaner trains or station. There's absolutely no litter anywhere. The red markings on the platform have the coach number on them and tell you where to stand and queue. When the train stops the door to your coach is exactly opposite the marking. Don't do what I did and cross the yellow line when the train is about to depart, the station master will have a minor fit.

One Man's Homespun Morgan: Below is a photo taken of one man's project to build a car similar to the UK's 3-wheel Morgan out of parts laying around his home and shop.



I had stopped by the man's house years ago when he had his creation out in the driveway. That man was legendary AMA hall-of-fame member Joe Bolger. Joe was one of the rare ones, a motocross champion, motorcycle maven, a really good wrench, an inventor with a number of patents, toolmaker and a really nice man. SIL Kevin and I first met Joe when he helped us find a good fishing hole. He saw us stopped by the road looking at a map, asked if he could help and then drove us to the spot in his antique Pierce Arrow. Joe died last year at age 90 after a fall. He was a class act who stood a little taller than the rest BTW, the hubcaps on that car above were made from lids to some of his wife's pans.
