Obsessed with cemeteries??
I wanted to see the Bonaventure Cemetery (visible from the ICW just north of Thunderbolt) that was very involved in the bestseller, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," as a voodoo site. [see earlier post during St. Mary's visit]
Another famous angel
I thought the famous statue in the book was the angel, but it turned out to be "The Bird Girl" which is not even there anymore. So here's the angel and the Bird Girl (now in a museum).
"What bliss to be in the cockpit with the sun and the warm breeze on one's skin, just watching the sea, and the sky, and the sails" -Sir Francis Chichester
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from your safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
"He who goes to sea for pleasure would go to Hell for a pastime." -Samuel Johnson
"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the wonders of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep" -Psalm 107
