Week 36. – 49. Where the “________” meets the sky.

My take on the clue is “Where the ship’s funnel meets the sky”.

This is “HMS Discovery”, now in Dundee, Scotland. We visited her last week when we were there to see my relatives. HMS Discovery was Scott of Antartica’s ship and it was interesting to see the history of the ship and the exploration. Dundee was a whaling centre in the 19th and 20th centuries and the seamen who sailed in the whaling ships shared their expertise in the building of the ship and the preparations for the journey and expedition.

In the background is the new wing of the Victoria and Albert Museum of London. It is a controversial building I believe with the locals. It is built over the water but had to be modified to take account of the tides. It looks like a landing craft from land. It will be interesting to see how it looks when it is complete.

  2. Yes. I grow up in a suburb of Dundee called Broughty Ferry which is a seaside village. I do miss the sea. The lowlands are near.
