DAY TWENTY-THREE Harassing a salty seadog

23 Sep

THE Polly Woodside was launched in 1885 in Belfast, sailed all over the world, and was eventually brought out of retirement (purchased for one cent) to live again in Melbourne’s South Wharf… although she’s closed today, of course. Still, I spot this grizzled looking dude at the wheel and I’m certain he’s a waxwork (they had boiler suits in the 1800s didn’t they?) until he gives himself a scratch. I get a passing seaman type to persuade the old fella to pose for me, although he isn’t that amused and shouts something inaudible at me from the deck. Cool.

Keeper? Seen it now.
