Monday Window – 15
Windows of the Bounty
Savannah, always a fun and lively place, turns especially festive when the “tall ships” visit. Just four years ago there was such a festival. One of the tall ships visiting was the 50-year-old replica of the 18th century square rigger HMS Bounty. It had been built for the making of the movie “Mutiny on the Bounty”. What a set!
This pano shows the windows from the inside. Here are some other views of the Bounty on this visit to Savannah, Georgia.
The tall ships departed on a dreary, rainy Saturday. Not many people turned out to say goodbye. None of us realized that it would be the last goodbye for the proud HMS Bounty. She saluted with her cannon. Sadly, a few month later she would be caught in the hurricane-ravaged waters off the North Carolina coast by hurricane Sandy. She sank with the loss of lives although most of her crew was saved.
