This wonderful tall ship was my adventure yesterday. I had heard that it would be in the Ogdensburg port and just had to go and check it out. It’s the HMS Bounty built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia for MGM Film Studios’ 1962 movie, Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando. Now I ask you, who could resist climbing aboard the very same ship that Marlon Brando was on? This very same ship was also used for Treasure Island, Yellow Beard, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean-Dead Man’s Chest.
When I climbed aboard this tall ship, I was taken back to my childhood days and Mystic Seaport where I spent a great deal of time with my grandmother. We would go through and look at and read about everything! It was always fun and always interesting. Many of the children and children at heart, had that same gleam in their eye as they toured this vessel. I just kept thinking about our song and the tall ships and getting pictures to show my students. It was a lot of fun!
The height of the masts is what I always find amazing. The way it all fits together to form a most picturesque ship in full sail. It was a wonderful experience indeed!
