Little Gem

Hello dear readers,

No, I am not talking about gems of the sparkly nature but rather a quaint wooden ferry.

This sweet wooden boat was built in 1947 and originally plied the waters between Palm Beach and Patonga and the Hawkesbury River (Sydney, Australia)...serving the "Riverboat Mail Run"




Originally called "The Westhead", she is now berthed at  Gem Pier, Williamstown, Victoria...and has been re-named "Little Gem".
She still goes out on half day cruises for those that love to experience the charm and romance of a bygone era.

Today I am linking up to Texture Tuesday with our host Kim Klassen
The challenge this week was to include two of Kim's textures in our photo...I included the rustic crackle of "Crackerjack" and "Vintage" textures.

Head on over to join in the fun.

Cheers,

Jenni

Wonderful photo, Jenni! Crackerjack is one of my all time favorite textures and it really looks great on your image. I love the curious seagulls you captured, too!

This is a great photo Jenni! I love the birds in the foreground too. I think it looks like an old oil painting. I would love to paint this...
