I'm not the only one who connected with John Barber's painting "Island Memories."
My daughter Grace, upon seeing the painting, sent me this photograph from the Norfolk waterfront showing fireworks and the lights on the rigging of the OpSail tall ships from last June.
Grace, who had a hand in building Spartina and is a regular on board, has spent her fair share of time on the Elizabeth River. She made the fireworks photograph, if I recall correctly, while making money hand over fist at a yogurt stand at Town Point Park on the waterfront.
You go Girl!
