19 August 1988

Today we saw the Wasa.  As you can see from the photo, it was still being restored.  It "sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628, and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961."  This was quite a site to see and amazing how they had been working to preserve it.
 We also went to the Skansen Open-Air Museum where among other things we saw this happy elephant playing with a log and my brother was enormously amused by the penguin shit and how it flowed down the rock.

How can you not find penguin poo amusing?

We were walking around the small museum (which had a small sized replica cut-out of the Wasa) and the Wasa itself at the same time as a tour group. Dad was amused by a woman who was so afraid that she would be late to the tour bus that she skipped the museum!
