A wee glimpse of the Waverley

It's a bit quiet just now on the family history news front, so here's a wee treat from Largs in North Ayrshire - the Waverley sailing past the isle of Cumbrae earlier this evening!

The Waverley is the world's last sea-going paddle steamer, and well worth an excusion. Your Scottish based ancestors may once have enjoyed a wee trip 'doon the watter' to the Clyde on a beautiful day like today and on a boat just like her!
