Wordless Wednesday: Blessing of the fleet

My dad and grandfather at the blessing of the fleet. Massachusetts, circa 1950s.


Never a ship sails out of the bay
But carries my heart as a stowaway.

  2. Beth,

    Thanks! I think our personal libraries would get along quite well. Ha! I patiently wait for Mr. Ondaatje's works, but he doesn't write them fast enough. If you tell me you love Elizabeth Berg, too, we can confirm separation at birth. :)
