Quest ….. A Unique Opportunity
A few years ago my Grandson Martin and I were invited to attend a rather unique event. It was a Vintage Steam Boat Rally. All the boats were replicas of larger craft and mostly built by the very proud owners.
Much to Martin’s surprise, Ian Cross the builder of this luxurious and very special Open Canadian Canoe with steam engine amidships, invited him to be skipper for the day.
So without hesitation and after a quick instructional, Martin set of in flotilla convoy with about a dozen other Steam craft.
Martin has now progressed to faster forms of transport and is very much at home lashing arround a race track burning up petrol in a high powered car.
But we still enjoy reflecting on an equally exciting day, travelling at a much more graceful pace, stoking up a steam engine with another form of fossil fuel….coal.
A personal Quest and one for this Weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge.
