There were several sculptures along the edge, I really liked this wire tree.
We decided to go into the Maritime Museum to check out all the cool ships on display. I wasn't honestly too excited about it, as ships aren't really my thing, but this turned out to be worthwhile. This is a shot out the window of the HMS Surprise, the ship used in the movie Master & Commander (with Russell Crowe).
Here is the Surprise's figurehead, she has a great expression on her face.
There were two submarines to go in, one from the Soviet Union and a US deep diving research sub. I only went in the Soviet one, because the oil/chemical smell just made me ill. I don't know how submariners do it?! Guess they must get used to it after a while. It was kind of amazing to see the small space that the sailors have to live in.
The deck was just beautiful, the woodwork so exacting and perfect. We could imagine how it must have looked "back in the day" out on the waterways of Scotland.
I just loved the sitting room, so elegant and fancy.
I had to take this picture because the big ship is named Berkeley (Go Bears!), they had a museum on that ship with displays from the US Navy and commercial tuna fishing and lots of other stuff too.
This is the Star of India, which was unfortunately closed because they were moving it the very next day at 7am. It had been there for years, but I guess it has to go to dry dock to have upkeep and repairs done on it. Too bad, it looked like a really neat ship, we were bummed to miss out on seeing it.
The figurehead of the Star of India. I couldn't get a shot without the lines in her face unfortunately.
This is how the ships are tied up. I really like the sunset light on the water in this picture.
