Thanks for visiting my blog Sailor Girl. I love boats. My dad had a much smaller wooden and brass wheel on the (much smaller) boat he used to have.

babooshka said...

You had to have a nautical theme. Excellent choices.

marley said...

What a lovely polished bell! Great choices for theme day :)

USelaine said...

Very pretty light! Ships fittings are alway so interesting.

George Townboy said...

The most beautiful Ship's Bell on the most beautiful CREOULA! Everything about that ship is awesome!

Denton said...

I'm glad your photo was aboard a ship. It is only fitting.

magiceye said...

Good representation of the theme!

Rambling Round said...

Nice and shiny!

Eki Qushay Akhwan said...

Interesting details of the ship - and shiny metal pieces. Perfect shots for the Metal Theme Day!

Kuanyin Moi said...

*Dancing to your music* and wishing to ring your bell and sail away!!

Harry Makertia said...

Thanks for passing by my blog, Raquel. Your choice of theme day is very interesting. What else you can expect from the Sailor Girl? Great pictures! I like it very much, and enjoy your blog!

Mezrci d'avoir laissé un message sur mon blog . Votre photo est celle d'un métal poli. La mienne est celle du fer brut.

PS : j'ai des amis portugais à Châteaubriant

Isadora said...

:) ooooh, this is some fancy metal.

Hyde DP said...

love the bell but I do wish you wouldn't play the music automatically.

Jilly said...

Ah, it had to be aboard a ship coming from you. Great bell!

Keropok Man said...

Lovely lovely lovely!
You should include a sound clip of how the bell sounds too! :-)


Happy Theme Day!

Mais duas excelentes fotografias. Parabéns, Sailor Girl.
Hoje fui surpreendido com o meu BLOGUE DOS NAVIOS E DO MAR bloqueado por alegadas suspeitas de ser um "Blogue de Spam". Será mais uma campanha desvairada contra o Mar? Ou apenas uma nova forma de manifestar imbecilidade por parte do Bloger?

LUIS MIGUEL CORREIA said...

Lovely photo of the bell.
Thank you for your comment on Mumbai Daily Snapshot.
Happy Theme Day!

Bibi said...

Ding, ding! Nicely polished bell!!

Sally said...

Imagine if it was your job to go around polishing the brass. I have enough trouble polishing the off bit or piece at home!

Kate said...

I agree with Sally; polishing silver is an unpleasant task for me. However, the bell would not fall into that category; it is lovely!

Tash said...

Sailor Girl said...

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR COMENTS AND VISITS!!! I WILL VISIT YOU SOON!

NOW I AM TRYING TO HELP A FRIEND AND SENT THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE TO BLOGGER:Lisbon, 1 August 2008 - I am very sorry to inform that SHIPS & THE SEA (http://lmcshipsandthesea.blogspot.com) has been blocked by BLOGGER for suspect of being a SPAM BLOG and disrespect of Blogger Practice, which is NOT TRUE.

The owner and author of the blog in question (http://lmcshipsandthesea.blogspot.com) has been noticed that his Blog may be closed in 20 days!

As those accusations are complete nonsense he has requested an official review of BLOGGER present position.

SHIPS & THE SEA readers - and there are between 300 and 2000 every day - have started helping, stating their opinions and comments.

In what I concern, please note that Luís Miguel Correia and I (Raquel Sabino Pereira, a.k.a. Sailor Girl) are co-authors of important blogs referring to Maritime Matters and to a Ship that belongs to the Portuguese Navy, Creoula, at:

http://lmc-creoula.blogspot.com
http://lmc-creoula-imprensa.com
http://estrategia-azul.blogspot.com


BLOGGER´s atitude has an obvious reflect upon me and my good name within the blogging Community (specially now that I am part of City Daily Photo Blogs - CDPB - with more than 900 bloggers around the world).

Thus, besides fixing the problem with the utmost urgency, we need to know WHO or through which IP's the denounce of Spam was made, to take legal action against the person/entity responsible for that action.

Thanks for your interest and support.

Sofia said...

O Creoula é sempre o Creoula :))))
Quando é o embarque?

Sailor Girl:
Queria felicitá-la pelos fantásticos blogues que dedica ao mar e ao Creoula, e que tenho vindo a acompanhar com muito interesse há muito tempo. Tal como a senhora, eu também sou (se se pode dizer assim) uma apaixonada pelo mar e pelo Creoula. Já participei em várias viagens, e dentro de pouco tempo embarco novamente. O Creoula é realmente inesquecível. Não deixe de investir na difusão do mar nos seus blogues que fazem a maravilha de tantas pessoas.

Obrigada, mas... Quem assina??
