          Is the DISCOVERY in permanent dry dock (static) or is this image just of her during a survey?

          And more importantly, is this the actual ship or a recreation of the original?

            I know of at least one members wife who really enjoys seeing penguins.

            What is the story about these cute birds in Dundee?

              I combined these two threads from Dundee into one.... I thought it might give us a better introduction to Dundee that way.

              And me for one: I want to see much more from Dundee.

                This is the real thing- permanantly docked afloat beside the 'Discovery visitor centre' in Dundee. Based on the design of a Dundee whaling ship, she was built for scientific research.

                A great deal of money and effort has been spent on restoration/maintenance of her http://www.rrsdiscovery.com/index.php?pageID=54

                  Yes, I'd never noticed these penguins I'd love to hear the story.

                      hi, i actually spent an hour walking all over dundee to get as many photos as possible, so didn't get all the stories behind them, as i moved on to glasgow the next day. I am just getting used to transfering from photobucket, and have just noticed two came up of the Discovery. will now try and put more on of dundee. I will need to ask my sister about the Maid of the Loch paddle steamer, as again that was a flying visit. christine x
