Boats and Ships
1 – Top Left – First tier: Savannah Riverboat Cruises was established in Savannah, Georgia in 1991 under the direction of experienced Captain, Jonathan H. Claughton. Savannah’s antebellum charm, with flowing Spanish moss hanging from stoic live oaks and welcoming shady squares, hearkens back to the days when paddle driven riverboats full of tourists and locals dotted the Savannah River. In winter 2007, the company welcomed the newest edition to their fleet, the 600 passenger New Savannah River Queen. This boat features three climate controlled dining rooms, three bars, and a top deck snack shop.
2 – Top Left – Second tier: Scene from the “Humedal” ( Marsh) Ventanilla, in the background you see a tall rock island, the Pacific ocean with a large trade ship on a foggy early morning. The location is north of Lima, the capital of Peru.
3 – Top Right : Sailboat decked at one of the piers in Sarasota, Florida.
4 – Bottom Left: The historic wharf is Jekyll’s only restaurant that sits on the water. Now owned by the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. “We love the outdoor area of the wharf, with its casual vibe and regular live entertainment”.
5 – Bottom Right: Tug boat working with loaded barge with fertilizer from the Ballesta Island in Pisco, South of Lima in Peru. At the time of photo the bag of 50 lbs of high percentage of Nitrate fertilizer cost was US$100.00.
