We saw the HMS BOUNTY:


The Bounty was built in 1960 for MGM studios' Mutiny on the Bounty with Marlon Brando. Since then, the new Bounty has been hired for many films and documentaries. From Treasure Island and Yellowbeard to Sponge Bob, Square Pants, the Movie, to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest to name a few. In addition to commercial movies, Bounty has also been the stage for many documentaries.
She was docked in the Saint Lawrence River which is about 25 minutes from our home. The Saint Lawrence river borders us here in NY and Canada!

:o)

Pretty cool eh?

A guy offered to take our photo! :) Drat, you can't see my nails. LOL!

  3. It's actually HMS (His Majesty's Ship). Sorry to be a pedant.
    The St Lawrence is amazing. Even at Montreal (1000 miles inland, I think) it is vast. You do things BIG over there!
