The Perpetually Sinking Ship
Those of you who have followed our blog on The Villages, Florida, know that this sinking ship was placed in Lake Sumter at the time it was built (less than 10 years ago) as a decoration and point of interest. It's been sinking ever since, bit by bit. Every once in awhile it sinks a little too much and is bailed out and restored to its less-sinking previous position. To see it you must visit Lake Sumter Landing's downtown in The Villages. As you can see, it is again seriously sinking. I hope it will soon be brought back up whereby it can be sinking but not drowning.

Ha. That's definitely an attraction.
Well, that is different!!! I hope it doesn't drown, too!! You do find the good ones!! Hope your week is going well, Lowell!!
I find myself wondering what the point is!
I can see why this would be an attraction, because many people, including myself, have a fascination for ships. Lovely photo. :)
I think that might be a losing battle there. The reflections in the water are so pretty!
By the way, I went back and looked at the lettering at my Lunchbox and then at yours again and I think you could be right!
A tourist attraction!!
Mayday Mayday !!
That's a slow 'death'!
Una imagen muy bonita...me gusta...un saludo desde Murcia...
A very curious story... love your image, Lowell !
I wonder when the owners will finally tire of rescuing it. ;)
Oh yes I remember the sinking ship :) lovely image Lowell.
I remember this: it is a very good idea!
Soon, maybe the only way you'll be able to view it will be in a glass-botto m boat. Hey, Gilligan?
I don't think it can go on sinking like that for much longer. At some point it's going to fall apart.
It's been a long time since I'd seen this sinking but not sinking ship! Love your composition!
I'm not sure that idea is one that was thought out long term.
What an unsual story! :-)
An almost-sinking ship? You don't see those every day.
Nice story about a lovely ship.
And the reflection in wonderful.
