on the waterfront

I was down on the Norfolk waterfront this evening and photographed a couple of interesting boats. That is "Fritha" below, a very nice looking boat out of Massachusetts. Beautiful boat, a square-rigged schooner maybe(??). Look at that beautiful carving on the stern. And look to the left and you'll see some of the guns of another impressive ship.
That is the battleship USS Wisconsin. There is her bow below. She is now a floating museum, a spectacular part of downtown Norfolk.
It was a nice walk along the waterfront. It reminded me of the 1970's in San Diego. Bruce was just out of the army, I was just out of high school. We both enjoyed photography and I remember some nice evenings on the shore of San Diego Bay photographing the fishing boats. Remember that, Bruce?
