Icebreaker in Hawai‘i

Healy at Pier 9

The US Coast Guard Cutter Healy is currently at Pier 9. I went on a tour of her this morning with two other Falls of Clyde volunteers.

The Healy is an impressive ship.

One of the areas I am interested in is polar exploration in the Age of Sail. Perhaps one day, the Healy, or a ship like her will find Erebus and Terror.

A different view of Falls of Clyde taken from the bridge:

I was also tickled to see the Falls on a display (sorry for the poor photo):
