Well, yes it’s a beautiful building from the outside, it was built as an exact replica for a World’s Fair many, many years ago and sits in the historic Centennial Park. The inside is a statue of the goddess Athena, I’m not interested. It’s a pretty Nashville landmark though.

Tea;; Just this question out of the blue. WE visited the Parthenon in Greece and I was wondering if you ever visited the replica of the Parthenon in Nashville? They say it is the full scale replica of the one in Greece? Again safe drive home. Linda

Hello Linda, I was just thinking about photos . . When we were passing the Gateway Arch, I took pictures from the interstate and like I thought, they’re blurry. It’s an impressive structure! We stayed in Chesterfield, just a few minutes further. A nice area! Well, guess what, it snowed and was overcast, so we’re planning on coming back another time to see the gardens and the Arch. This time, I think I bombed on the photos🙄 See you tomorrow.

Happy Jigidi Anniversary Linda !!
Thank you for telling me and the sweet comment😃
I feel the same way . . grateful for these new friendships🧩💚 Hope you have a great weekend too. I’m here in St. Louis, but will be heading back to TN tomorrow.

HI Tea.. Just popping in again to tell you that today makes two years since I joined Jigidi. So glad that I did. How else could I have met you and so many wonderful caring people, that I now consider my Jigidi friends. Have a great weekend . LOL:) Linda

Teagardener

I’m glad you’re alright :)

Yes Tea.. We had some real bad thunder storms and teeming rains. All evening and through the night we had to hear the clattering of thunder and our rooms lit up with lightening. If you live in Florida you learn to expect it and live with it. The worst is when you loose your electricity. We were fine and we needed the rain. April is the rainy season in Fl. Many of the lakes and canals are down at least 2 to three feet. We need the rain. Thanks for thinking of me. LOL:) Linda

Hello Linda, thank you and glad you like the ship puzzle! I thought about you this weekend, you’ve had some rough weather. On the map it looked like it was around where you live, but it may have been to the north. But if you’re here on Jigidi, I guess you’re alright😃

Hi Tea.. Now that's what I would call a cargo ship. You are right it's tremendous in size. It just has to be ,as it is carrying so many goods, and materials from one port to another. Thousands of cargo carriers ply the world seas and oceans each year, handling the bulk of international trade. Today I learned another fact about you. Thank you for this fabulous picture.

@JillianB
I’m smiling . . I know . . I surprised myself! Besides the live cams (YouTube), the tracking websites and apps I also have a book about the ship companies, where they originate from, the tonnage, what they carry, their age, length . . and “what’s under their hood”😃 When we drove up to Duluth to see them come into port, we made a special trip to meet Li (Joyfulli) and her husband, that visit made the whole trip really special !
Well, now you know about my odd interest in cargo ships . . . it’ll be our secret😉

JillianB

I agree with Lorna! I’ve have learnt something really fascinating today and it not about the ship but you Tea! I would never imagined you had a passion for cargo ships, it makes me smile. Thanks

@lovesgulls
How have you been? Thanks for your comment and doing the puzzle! In the last few days I noticed on the Duluth chat room that some of them were talking about a cam being down, but couldn’t figure out which one they meant. I hope it’s back up soon!

Hi Sara,
Yeap you’re right . . but there’s another port I’m trying to think of that has escaped my blonde brain at the moment. It’ll come to me later :) Speaking of Sarnia . . We’ve really wanted to drive up to Port Huron and then go across the bridge into Sarnia . . we’ve been waiting till it was opened on the American side. I imagine it is now🚢

Port of Entry: Sarnia, Canada

@smazik Hello Frans, thanks for doing the puzzle!
In your comment I recognize the words ship and tanker, but I see you’ve asked me something. This is a cargo ship, it mostly hauls iron pellets or coal. If you look on a USA map, at the top border between the US and Canada you’ll see Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Michigan . . these cargo ships have water routes on these lakes. Some cargo ships come from other countries, but I can’t remember the port of entry. Have a good weekend!

Prachtig schip , een tanker?

Thank you for the great photo of the Manitoulin entering through the Superior entry, Tea. Unfortunately the webcam has been down due to power outage for some weeks now.

LOL - the information actually said it was worth 7.5 milllion in working condition or for scrap. Paint could help, but it looks like it usually is deeper in the water when filled, hiding the rust from view. Did you ever watch the movie "Captain Phillips" - it really shows how big these ships in action.

Hi Sara,
Yes, for a few years I’ve been a passionate fan of these cargo ships! I watch the YouTube live cams from: Duluth (5 or 6) , Port Huron, Algonac and Marine City. There are websites, apps that are great at tracking their movements. Also the moderators in the YouTube live chat rooms update which ones are coming & going. I was given a fascinating book about the ships that come to these ports! So, for my b’day one year, I went to Duluth (+Superior) to watch them, in person! Loved every minute:) You wrote about the cost of this one, I imagine someone is going to comment on “. . the rust and why don’t they paint it?” But most ships do get painted every 5 years, during lay-up, it’s very costly, somewhere around a million dollars or more! That’s the reason it’s not done every year :)

sara34358

This photo is fascinating so I looked her up. Did you know there is a website where you can track any ship's movements on a minute to minute basis? Fascinating.

MANITOULIN is a Self Discharging Bulk Carrier that was built in 1991 (31 years ago) and is sailing under the flag of Canada. Her length overall (LOA) is 202 meters and her width is 23 meters. It is worth 7.5 million dollars.

That’s a good description :)
It’s of substantial size, but not one of the “1000 footers”. I got to stand at the end of the pier to watch it come in and it’s so long, it took forever to move past me! I love these ships and their history😃

goingsilver

Wow, that is a beast of a ship!
