Concrete's Pictures

Concrete Barge
Concrete Barge (Pentax Optio 50)

Being a sad sort of chap, when I found out that they made ships out of concrete I really wanted to see one. And now I have. This chap is FCB18 at the National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port. The museum is really impressive and I would definitely recommend it unless you don't like boats... or water, then you're best steering clear. It also has a pump house that houses a rather large engine and boiler which is very reminiscent but less impressive then the one in Astley Green but then again it would be rather difficult to be more impressive. Another interesting thing is Porter's row which is a street containing 4 cottages built in 1833 but done up in 1840's-1950's style.

Concrete Boat
Concrete Boat (Minolta X500)

This is the concrete boat in Portmeirion, doesn't sound such a successful sailing craft and you're be right because it doesn't sail. It's moored to the promenade with brick. I did think of taking my video camera at that moment and hand it to my Wife and pretending to be in The Prisoner. but decided against this as I would meet up with strange looks from tourists and my Wife alike.
