Actually, some of last week's pictures of bridges fit in with the nautical theme as well.
When participating in nautical activities, always wear life-jackets -- even if you're not happy about it! This photo was taken over 25 years ago on our houseboat.
This is the framed print on the wall in the den. It's the poster for "Friends of the Coast" week. Not sure how navigable this waterway is, though.
Finally, some posters from World War II that fit with the nautical theme.
Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Presidents' Day!
