From BLack Peter:
“In 1883 he [Captain Carey] commended the steam sealer Sea Unicorn, of Dundee.”
I was so surprised to read the name of the ship ‘Sea Unicorn’. A unicorn is mythological enough — but a Sea Unicorn?! That seems to be pushing it over the top. Would we imagine a ship named the ‘Sea Pegasus’ or ‘ Sea Phoenix’?
But luckily when I googled the term a herd of narwhals appeared on my screen…
