Photographer's Note

I am about to close this old travelogue, but before the last post tomorrow, I wanted to include Agard II in the gallery, with two views, to comemorated the first anniversary of her disappearance.
Asgard II sunk one year ago, and she will not be lifted because of a conjonction of unfavorable circunstances, mainly the financial crisis which has severely damaged Ireland. THose whol iked here are now waiting for an Asgard III, as promised by hthe Irish government.

In the main post here, Asgard II is only visible through her bowspruit, which is nevertheless easy to identify thanks to 1) the figurehead of Granuile, the pirat queenn, and 2) the blue and white pennant of Coiste an Asgard (the association who owned the ship), showing a double spiral inspired by Celtic art and depicting the Sun (orange)and the Moon (white). One of these pennants is hanging on my wall.
I took also a general view of Asgard II, in workshop, but which was unfortunalty cropped at the bowspruit!
