I took this picture of the Acadia last year in Halifax Harbour. Built in England and launched in 1913, she was made extra tough for icy Canadian Arctic waters. She survived service in two World Wars and the Halifax Explosion of 1917. What I like most about this ship is not just her history, but her classic Edwardian lines; although a tough hardworking survey vessel, she looks more like a sleek steam yacht!
