Lansing, MI USA
Thank you very much for the wonderful comments and tales of your own. I am happy to have touched you. The Fitz will always hold a special place in my heart. Standing before her bell was very humbling. Kind of puts things in perspective. I love lighthouses, the sea, shipwrecks, etc. always have. Luckily, my husband also shares these interests and we have seen some wonderful things together.
INclan...have you been to the ship Valley Forge in Sault Ste Marie? They have the remnants of the Fitz's lifeboats....yes literally torn apart in sections, one half missing. There are also the huge buoys used to mark the wreck....they are severly dented. Awesome sights to behold!!! We went there before the Whitefish Point. I just love it there.
Marge...I will consider it. That would be an honor indeed.
Corinne...please do find it. I'd love to read it.
Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.
