This is a fine art, advanced cross stitch design from Nelson’s Dockyard. English Harbour, Antigua’s historic district, is focused on the fifteen square miles of Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Antigua Naval Yard at English Harbour was built around 1725 and was the headquarters for the fleet of the Leeward Islands during the late 18th century when it maintained the Royal Naval warships that captured valuable sugar islands of the Eastern Caribbean. The Yard was abandoned by the navy by 1889, but a restoration began in 1951 and was named Nelson’s Dockyard in honor of Admiral Horatio Nelson who had served as a Captain in the Leeward Islands from 1784-87. The reflections in the water of this design are incredible . . . even the clouds.
This is a fine art, advanced cross stitch design of Doorways, an image from Fort San Felipe del Morro which sits on the north shore of Puerto Rico at the entrance to San Juan harbor. It is a stone sentinel standing guard over the island.
This is a fine art, advanced cross stitch design of Crescent City Connection. After returning to port early morning from the Caribbean, we awaited the sunrise while enjoying a hot cup of coffee. We watched as the glorious sun rose behind the elegant steel skeleton of the bridge. The Crescent City Connection (formerly the Greater New Orleans Bridge) are twin cantilever bridges that carry U.S. Route 90 Business over the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana, just a stone’s throw from the French Quarter. They are tied as the fifth-longest cantilever bridges in the world, and it is the widest and most heavily-traveled bridge on the lower Mississippi.
This is a fine art, advanced cross stitch design of a cruise ship in an Alaskan Harbor. While meandering amongst the totem poles and touring the quaint shops in Haines, Alaska, my fellow passengers and I caught a glimpse of our vessel in the harbor, awaiting our return . . . a warm refuge from the chilly Alaskan night.
