Ooops...I did not see the rest of the posts.

A picture of a print that hangs in my dining room.
My late husband and I hauled sail on that ship in 1984. We sang sea songs with a group of visitors and the guide. We were on our honeymoon, enroute to Cape Cod.

Nice memory trigger. TY

I currently don't have a smart phone, but if I could get an app for that, I'd go out and buy one in a heartbeat!
