Portmeirion - Part 3 4/7

A fine view of the Observatory Tower can be had from the Quayside through the rigging of the Amis Reunis (1930) which is neither a building or a ship but actually a bit of both. Clough had bought a ketch which he moored up at this point but during a gale it was dragged out to sea and stranded. He managed to save various parts of the ketch and built this model boat as part of the quayside to take its place.

I remember this feature, the chap had good imagination and vision.

That is cool. Do children play on it?
Brian Walbey: I don't think one can actually get on it to be honest.
A fine view, Brian.
