We Sail At Noon


Seeing the silhouette on the horizon
I was transported 
Like in a dream
Where navigation is at your fingertips.

  3. Nice shot. Some of the bigger cargo ships can really move. I've been overlooking Boston Harbor and one will materialize out of nowhere.

  5. All the places people have gone on ships. My mother's mother and her siblings and their parents left Norway years ago and somehow made their way to Liverpool. From Liverpool they sailed to Ellis Island. We know from immigration records that my great-grandfather had $150 to start life in America. My future grandmother was 12 years old when they arrived in about 1900.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Ships were the main means of transportation back then. My Great great grandfather arrived in NYC, I believe Ellis Island, in 1850 and made his way north to Nova Scotia.
      We have Pier 21 here in Halifax which was our 'Ellis Island' in Canada.
      Janie, weren't these early immigrants amazing people?!

    2. Oh, yes! One of my grandmother's siblings was a baby when they came to America. I can't imagine making that long voyage with several children, one of whom was in diapers. Then when they arrived they had to make their way to Minnesota.
