Water front views

Isn't it lovely when driving through town these days, we see sitting at the new city dock a blue and white ship with a smoke stack showing "8 stars of gold on a field of blue". Just to see the beauty of this ship and know of its size and comfort in accomodating the citizens of this great state sitting in full view, brings to mind the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" (in the book "Molly Bawn" of the late 1800's).

As well this time of year, our blue and white ships travel the Tongass Narrows on this side of Pennock so we can see and enjoy our ships, crewed by our neighbors, family and friends.

Three cheers to all who "care enough to sail the very best".
