Out and about today, and I came across this framed photo for sale. (Excuse the crappy mobile-phoneness of the photo, not to mention the reflections in the shopfront window.)


That's right, the grounded Pasha Bulker, gone though she may be, is now art.

For the paltry sum of … er, whatever they're asking, I didn't actually get a chance to look, whatever, that's not the point — for a paltry sum you can hang a picture of a grounded coal ship on your wall.

Although, to be fair, it's a pretty good picture.

And, to be doubly fair, I'd far rather hang a picture of the grounded ship on my wall than hang the 19 tonne shard of discarded rudder, ripped off during the un-grounding, in the town centre. No, I'm not joking.

  1. You know, it didn't even take four hours for people to take photos of the ship from the vantage point which included the beachside "No Parking" signs.

    Until I looked up the news story, I didn't realise we'd actually won the rudder back — last I heard we were squalling to stop the owners of the ship from melting it down. So yes, it will be very interesting to see what they do with it.

  2. …I know it was amusing, having a giant coal ship on the beach and all that, but it was a traffic accident. The driver didn't pay attention to the slippery when wet signs.
