400 sheep were frozen per day

I am hoping that one day at a pub quiz the question ‘What is the name of the 9th oldest ship in the world?’ Will be asked, and I will nod my head, take my pen and triumphantly  write Edwin Fox, sit back smugly in my chair and be thankful for the day it rained in Picton, rendering all sight seeing activities useless and leaving me with the option of Aquarium or the Edwin Fox Museum.

The woman behind the desk billed the visit a great afternoon, starting with a 30 minute video telling the Edwin Fox story, then a look around the museum which was in fact the walls around the projector screen, telling The Edwin Fox story but this time with props. Edwin Fox on the other hand was worth the $10 entry fee.
