Artist's Description

“Governor Stone” is a registered floating National Landmark, the second-oldest Coast Guard-registered vessel in the United States. (The oldest is the “USS Constitution,” aka “Old Ironsides”). Built in 1877, the Governor Stone is the sole floating survivor of the indigenous coastal sailing schooners of the American South. This photograph was taken in 2002 on a still December morning just as the fog began to lift in the fishing / boating harbor in Apalachicola, Florida, on the panhandle gulf coast.

The Governor is now under the care of the Friends of the Governor Stone in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, and you can help keep the craft afloat:
