I saw the Eagle sail into port the other day and decided to pay a visit today. Sorry the pics are quick and dirty and only a few of all I shot but wanted to share. I found the ship in excellent condition considering it was built in 1936

Quote:
The Eagle is a three-masted sailing Barque with 21,350 square feet of sail. It’s home port at the Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut and is the only operational commissioned sailing vessel in the U.S. maritime services. It was built in 1936 by the Blohm & Voss Shipyard, Hamburg, Germany, as a training vessel for German Naval Cadets. Originally commissioned Horst Wessel and following World War II was taken as a war prize by the United States and on May 15, 1946, the barque was commissioned into U.S. Coast Guard service as the Eagle and sailed from Bremerhaven, Germany to New London, Connecticut.

Length: 295 feet
Maximum Speed: 11-16 knots (under full sail)
Maximum Range: 5450 miles
Training Complement: 12 Officers, 38 crew, 150 cadets (average)
Major Missions: Training vessel for CG Academy Cadets

That is a kick ass ship Walkgood. Up here in the frozen north things look a little different. Sorry in advance for the grainy image.

Thanks. No it didn't. We stopped at one of those one stop shop, truck stop thingies, and this is what the sky looked like. Just rained and thundered.

Thanks UV, I was walking around the yard watering yesterday and couldn't believe how many orchids and plants were blooming, there's many more but didn't want pic overload. I really wanted to include my ginger that's blooming in all it's glory but the pic looked a little too falic

CS4'ed photos, eh?

The clarity and manual control of a DSLR is probably why I still want them, despite their high prices.

I managed to score a Nikon D3000 SLR at quite a good price. For $650AUD I got the D3000 and a lens... I know it's not the most expensive camera or the best that money can buy - but for that price it is a freakin awesome entry level DSLR camera (thats the demographic it is aimed at) and can produce some incredible shots...
