The "Nina" Visits Oswego - June 18, 2006

The Nina of the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria fame has been visiting Oswego over the weekend. Anchored behind the Oswego Maritime Museum's LT-5 Tug, this replica of one of Columbus' 1492 vessels was hand built in Brazil and is touring the Great Lakes. Built in 1988, the Nina left Brazil in 1991 and sailed to Costa Rica, a 4000 mile trip, to take part in the filming of "1492." Since that time the ship has visited over 250 ports in the US.

The LT-5 Tug & the H. Lee White Marine Museum

By the way, if you haven't seen the LT-5 it is worth a trip to the Northern end of West 1st Street to visit both the tug and the H. Lee White Marine Museum. Along with the ocean going tug that participated in the "D" day invasion during WWII, the museum collects artifacts pertinent to the maritime history of the Great Lakes in general and the Oswego area of upstate New York in particular.

The Omara Tourist Center - June 18, 2006

The Omara Tourist Center is a one room school house the Oswego School System stopped using in 1913. It served as a chicken coop for many years, and was moved to its current location next to the South Athletic Field parking lot on State Route104 East in 1974. Volunteers from the State University of New York's Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provide maps, brochures & information about Oswego city & county as well as the rest of upstate New York. It is open seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

WRVO FM Radio's Tower - June 7, 2006

If you are wondering why WRVO has been off the air a couple of the past afternoons, they have been upgrading their antenna. While crews are working on the tower, the transmitter is shut down.

The extra speck on WRVO's Tower is a person!

The Oswego River - May 22, 2006

I took a walk along the Oswego River from the parking lot next to the post office to the lower dam. No fishermen - I'm not sure why. Photos of scenery & birds. The little swifts? are impossible - they move so fast!

Salmon Fishing on the Oswego River - October 20, 2005

The water is higher than normal in the Oswego River this Fall so it's not as crowded as usual. Caught a photo of the "Grande Mariner" on is way to it's Winter home. Looks a bit odd going through the lock next to the Oswego River Low Dam...
