This young man was part of the crew on the Bill of Rights, the ship I went out on at the Tall Ships Festival. He said he was very interested in learning everything about ships, and sang some old traditional sea shanties. It turned out he was only 15 years old.
I saw this sweet moment between father and son. I loved his little hands grabbing onto dad.
I spent yesterday afternoon in the Huntington Library Gardens in the Pasadena, CA area. I was with a group of family and friends, adtive and chatting and enjoying the flowers and each other. I saw this woman, sitting alone on a bench down the path, and liked the stillness and solitude she had found in "her" garden space.
