ABC WEDNESDAY - # 21 (T)

(Photo by Sailor Girl)
«T» is for «TRAFARIA PRAIA», one of our beautiful Lisbon Ferries, formerly German, owned and manned by TRANSTEJO. Another fabulous and, some will say, sassy contribution to ABC Wednesday!... LOL!...
«T» is also for Silver Cloud cruising on «THAMES» and passing under London's «TOWER BRIDGE», with the help of a London «TUG»!! This photo was taken and kindly sent by my friend David Trevor Jones, and it was the first time in his life he saw a cruise ship pass beneath Tower Bridge, albeit backwards!!! He is immensely lucky! I never saw one there!!...

Sassy. I like that. I wish we had as many ships and boats in our harbour.

I would be taking that ferry back and forth, back and forth, just for the fun.
Look at all those sailboats, too!

What?! I thought today's ABC Wednesday was "D is for ...!" LOL!
The scandals on my FEET theme day are called KEENs. Try online. Ciao bella!

I love the sassy little ferry boat. Our ferry boats are huge compared to that cutie. And look at all the sail boats. Wonderful. MB

I love ships too. My father had been a sailor for over 40 years before he died. We lived in Indonesia and every 5 years he had to go to the Netherlands for a year, in which my father had to study and sit for an exam to get promoted to a higher rank. So I had made 4 voyages from the Netherlands to Indonesia and back again. Now I take the plane to go to Australia, but it's not the same as being on a ship for a month. I love tall ships and other sailing boats. Thanks for your visit!

Nice one - especially of Tower Bridge!

PS Do a search of my blog with the word Tall...

I love the ferry, and your friend was extremely lucky to catch a shot like that. Fine post!

From one Team member to another, many thanks.

The "Silver Cloud" photo is incredible. Wow. And it had to back up?
