the sailing vessel tossed around on the wild seas might not be inducing a healthy appetite, Lisl. i love the shot however.
Lisl: Thank you, Ayush. I hope you are not feeling sea-sick!
What a nice sign, Elisabeth, you captured it well.
Lisl: Thank you, Frank - it is new sign, and much better than the one it supersedes
I would love to go there and check out the boat. Very nicely shot.
Lisl: I love the way the artist has depicted it
I love their logo! Nice shot!
Lisl: Thank you, Elizabeth - I was surprised to see this new inn sign, as the old one had become so familiar over many years

I especially like the shio under full sail charging through the seas; much have been very exciting but sometimes rather scary.
Lisl: I guess they looked pretty much like this in a gale, Alan

"Following a 3-week refurb internally there’s new furniture and lighting, a new antique brass upper back bar gantry with Victorian green and cream tiles for that pop of colour, and a complementary colour scheme throughout. We have a new tiled floor and we’ve revived the existing timber floors to brighten up the space."

So we now we know!
Lisl: Thank you, Alan - this is in Bristol, so you never know, you may get a visit one day on one of our mini-shutterchance get-togethers
Oh,how wonderful for Boat Friday, Lisl. I want to go there one day. HA! To eat. 1745 was 200 years before I was born. smile
Lisl: That could be made possible, Ginnie - it is in Bristol

A shipwreck of a craft named Ostrich? Only guessing Lisl..
Lisl: This is from wiki:
The Ostrich Pub was built around 1745. It is one of the pubs on the Bristol Harbourside that was used by the sailors, shipyard and dockside workers and merchants who worked in the Port of Bristol during the time of the slave trade. One of its walls has been partly knocked down so that you can see part of the caves under Redcliffe. Inside the pub, on the wall there is a copy of a trade card for the Ostrich Pub from 1775, which has a picture of a young black man (probably a slave) on it.

Now that is a fine sign, Lisl. I love that sailing boat, I wonder about the building.
I am a little confused what the ostrich and the boat have in common.

I see that Alan did an investigation.... wink
Lisl: Againfrom wiki:
Plenty of controversy has surrounded the origin of its name.Some say it is named after the market stall that once sat in front of the pub selling only feathers, while others say the name derives from Oyster Reach by which the nearby Trimm Mills pond was once known.
Cette enseigne est vraiment très belle !
Lisl: One of the best, Claudine
J'aime beaucoup l'affiche et ce superbe voilier.
Lisl: I know you like sailing ships, Martine!

a wonderful inn sign. I recall to have seen an Ostrich sign in Bristol.
Lisl: You have a good memory, Philine - that would have been its previous sign
A rather fine pub sign Lisl
Lisl: One of the best, Bil

A nicely painted sign Lisl. I like the pub name too. I like Butcombe bitter too.
Lisl: In that case, you must visit it, Chad
Très belle cette affiche et bien présentée.
Lisl: One of the nicest inn signs I have seen

That is a beautiful sign. Your focus is perfect.
Lisl: Thank you so much, Andy
What a fine sign! I would have used gold leaf on the gold part.
Lisl: It is indeed a very smart one

An interesting sign, how odd to see an ostrich with boat and sea smile
Lisl: It is - my explanation to Astrid may help, Anne
Some of you folks find boats everywhere, this is an excellent discovery, I really like the sign.
Lisl: Yes - boats seem to jump out at me, Brian!
I love this sign! Friendship
Lisl: It's very pleasing, isn't it?
i love the ship with the sails bursting full Lisl... you find such great boats....petersmile
Lisl: They seem to come out of thin air, Peter!
Nicely composed Lis smile It's an intriguing name, alongside the picture......
Lisl: It is.Some say it is named after the market stall that once sat in front of the pub selling only feathers, while others say the name derives from Oyster Reach by which the nearby Trimm Mills pond was once known.
