I'll take a guess: Is that the famous bell-tower? The one that lists . . . er, leans?

Welcome back, JD. I hope you had a great trip with lots of stories to tell.

I hope you can make it to our little get-together at Mystic in a couple of weeks!

Well....first off, they're not ships but hulcs. Commom hearldry type.... so of any date post say 1150AD. From the clue, and the garish architecture, most likely the Arsenal in Venice.

Do I get a cookie?

John H.,

Glad you identified the type of vessel depicted on stone. smile.gif But you are a few hundred miles off on where those chiseled images are.

No cookie yet. :confused: so take another stab at it.

Maybe if I pull back a few feet and keep away from Galileo's experiments. ;)
