Saturday PhotoHunt - Long



The theme for today's PhotoHunt is LONG. I've looked everywhere for something suitable, without success. I've followed my cats around, waiting for them to stretch, particularly Rinli - he likes to sleep fully extended. I measured him once, and he was just half an inch short of 3 feet in length. Has he co-operated? Has he pandered to my photographic pleas? Come off it - this is a CAT I'm talking about!

So instead I'm submitting this picture from our family collection. This sail-training ship, the Asgard ll, visited our local port while we were still living on our island, so we naturally went to see.
She looks fairly long, and the Irish word for ship is - wait for it - long.



Will that do?

By the way, if you follow the link to Asgard ll, it's well worth checking the photos.

Great choice for this week's theme and of course keeping up an important name in Irish history.

Have a great weekend

I like that boat a lot. I can envision taking a long journey on it.

That's a lovely ship - great pic. I tried getting a pic of my Leo doing his long stretch, too, but the instant I decided to do that, he decided to spend the next few days sleeping curled up in a tight ball. Typical! Have a lovely weekend.

My LONG pics are up at Siani's Pot-Pourri, where you also have another couple of awards waiting for you.

What a beautiful ship too. I love boats, and the water. Although, I didn't grow up on the ocean, but in the Great Lakes state,... water everywhere! Great photo and have a good weekend.

Typical of pets not to cooperate when you need them to! However, you have done well! Beautiful ship and a nice linguistic coincidence.

What a super ship! I love lookin' at tall ships and such - I use to love watching and touring them when I lived in San Diego. No ships to see here in the farmlands of TN tho LOL
