Orinoco likened to a cat called Ulysses!
Found on the internet today, a nice little piece about Orinoco. It was on the Geograph website, which has the tag line, “photograph every web square”.
And here’s what the website says about the photo:-
“The sailing barge ‘Orinoco’, moored at Iron Wharf, Faversham Creek.
“A calm, warmish June evening – warmer than many in June 2012. In the distance, the unmistakable silhouette of Oyster Bay House, with its hoist high above the creek. A little nearer, there is what looks rather like the awning over a railway station platform – this has in fact been rigged up over a vessel undergoing restoration.
“I love the idea of giving the adventurous name ‘Orinoco’ to a modest coastal-going Thames barge – it’s a bit like calling your cat Ulysses.”
