“What a waste of time”

Steam Clock - Ariande
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It's a clock that rings and bubbles. Hardly an "attraction" and located in a fairly commercial area. I wouldn't waste time (no pun intended) visiting this...

This Clock Huffs and puffs steam and clanks and rings bells every hour. Someone from the Maritime Musuem would tell you more about the history that it represents if one was interested.

This is known well by the locals as being one of their incompetent government's biggest 'blonde' moments when it came to the efficient use of tax payers money... and have to agree. About as interesting as a washing machine. Most notably, it's apparently not powered by steam having been converted to electric (so I am told). Hoots a couple of times, on the hour, and supposedly blows bubbles (not in the MJ sense) but obviously they'd run out of washing liquid when I last saw it in full awe-inspiring action. Stand in front of the mirror and count the hairs in your ears... it's much more fun...

How anybody can find this non-entity in any way interesting is way beyond my comprehension. Even Mickey Mouse would not be seen dead captaining this vulgarity. Enough said!
