It will be an interesting attraction to add to Adelaide ... the city that shares its name. Hopefully our climate that is very different to Scotland's will not take an accelerated toll of its aged timbers.

Built in 1864 "The City of Adelaide" will join other restored heritage ships like the "One and All" and the "Failie" from our colonial days. Port Adelaide has become somewhat of a focus for historic ship preservations.:)

The latter two are restored and sea-going, but "The City of Adelaide" seems destined to become a static fixture.:)

Scottish people are the most annoying people in the world. I believe all Scottish men are gay. They parade around in their kilts, blowing their bagpipes, which produces the worst music ever. I guess for Scottish men, wearing a kilt is an illustration of their homosexuality.
