    Such a travesty they lost her the way they did!! Still can’t believe it. A beautiful tribute, George!

  • Thanks Wendi, how very true. I felt the same way when I heard the news. I’d been on board her numerous times at Tall Ship festivals, mostly in Halifax.

    A very nice shot of this majestic ship. It is hard to understand why Capt. Walbridge would have been at sail from Connecticut to St. Petersburg, with the hurricane passing so close by. I understand the Coast Guard has today (11/2) suspended the search for the Captain. Very sad for the families of him and the lady lost as well.

  • Thank you James, I have many shots of her over the years, it was hard to pick an appropriate one. I also am at a loss to understand why she was there, when there were so many warnings well in advance. I come from a sea-faring family and worked on ships for quite a few years myself, so the loss of one that I knew quite well really hit home to me.

    It is very sad news , a beautiful image George x

  • Hi Irene, and thank you for your sympathy. It’s always sad to see a fine ship lost at sea, but especially when it’s one you’ve seen and been onboard many times. She was built in my home province of Nova Scotia, and always was a feature at the Tall Ship Festivals every few years down there.
