Wow - how cool is that!! Nice images, Peter!

J'aime ces vieux bateaux, ils ont un charme fou. C'est sur un de ce genre que j'ai fait ma première croisière sur le Nil en 1979. Depuis les grands modernes ont pris la place et parfois le Nil est aussi encombré qu'une autoroute.
Bisous pour 3
....peter:): Ce devait être amusant de traverser le Nil avec un tel bateau à vapeur Marie ... Bisous de nous 3

Steamers look so graceful Peter, especially on lakes.
....peter:): graceful from a distance but not very quiet Chad grin....smile

Looks like one of those old sloggers on the great African lakes.
....peter:): this one was built on Lake Muskoka which is a land locked lake Louis....petersmile
A grand old lady Peter
....peter:): this grand old lady started out with paddle wheels Bill... they changed to props in the 50's... i think....petersmile

That is a great view of the boat, Peter. A classic so to see.
....peter:): thank you Astrid... i left the top picture grainy to add age to the shot....petersmile
What fun it must be to ride in a Steam boat like this. Do you know what kind of fuel they burn to produce black smoke like this, Peter?
....peter:): they still use coal to burn in it Beverly... i think... it was great to tour the lake on her....petersmile
I saw a similar ship in Kingston a decade or so back.
....peter:): that would have been a tour of the 1000 islands Mary... wasn't it fun....petersmile

I like the difference between the big Steamboat and the little boat - the lakescape is beautiful in the mist.
....peter:): she is that big Philine... it is hard to miss her on the lake....petersmile
This actually reminds me of what one might see on the Mississippi River, Peter. smile
....peter:): she had paddle wheels until the 50's Ginnie... that would fit in just right along the Mississippi....petersmile
Puff, puff, puffing along smile
