On April 10, 1912, Titanic departed Southampton, England, on her maiden voyage to New York City. She sank five days later on the morning of April 15th after hitting an iceberg four hundred miles off the coast of Nova Scotia.
My tugboat man is a true waterman on land, too. When he’s not driving tugboats all around the world’s oceans and waterways, he’s surfing big and small waves here in SoCal.
I’m NOT a water lover like he is, but I enjoy kayaking and sailing (with him) our little dory appropriately named Princess Rosebud. Read all about it here: In Which Princess Rosebud Embarks Upon a Magical Journey
When my tugboat man is home between assignments, he likes to assemble models. Of boats. He’s especially fascinated with Titanic. I wrote about it here: Building A Paper Titanic.
This time he created an adorable tiny sparkly silver Titanic, about six inches long, using tweezers and a magnifying glass.
The details are so precious!Isn’t it the cutest little thing, and so sparkly?The assembled model right next to the picture on the box.Nope, no jokes, not going there LOLOn the dock.I’ve searched on the internet for different models that my water loving mariner might like. I found some elaborate tugboat designs, but they’re very expensive, in the $300-$400 range. That’s a BIT pricey for something that’ll eventually sit on a shelf to be dusted by moi.
