OXFORD AND WARWICK
Here is me, me brother Snuzie (boat guy) and Normie (Science Guy). We are having an Isambard Kingdom Brunel day here in Bristol. Who is Isambard? Only the most influential human from Britain that ever existed. He figured out how to tunnel under the Thames, build the Clifton Suspension Bridge and basically invent steam ships which brought all those folks overseas faster than them there sailboats. That and he figured out that ships made of iron floated good too and held more stuff.
This here ship that I'm on used to be called the SS Great Britain but is now, officially, Brunel's SS Great Britain. You can go on it, in it and under it. There are rebuilding the dry dock area to resemble how it was in the 1800's along with a Brunel museum.
You can even climb the rigging but much as I tried, and I tried, a lot, my dear old Dad wouldn't climb up. Tried all day to convince him but it was not to be. It's not that high.
Rigging me olde Dad wouldn't climb. Did you know this boat sailed around the world 32 times? Now enjoy my little pictures. Nuthin more fun onboard ships than playing with the food.
