1. I can see you love boats. I do too. Perhaps because the first years of my life we had a view to a harbour with lots of boats and ships. The season we are entering is a bit scary for many reasons. I will turn 60 (strange), you are electing a new pesident, and the winter is unpredictable. Sometimes too early, too hard, and days of chaos to get to work…
    But I look forwards to a cruise trip in November, from Barcelona 🙂


  2. Hello, the ship is beautiful. I love the pretty flowers and the fall colored leaf. It is still mostly green here, not many colors to be seen yet. Thanks for hosting. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!


  3. It was so interesting learning about your childhood voyage from Indonesia to Holland — you were part of history without even knowing about it at the time! I imagine your parents were a little more worried about the whole thing while you enjoyed yourself. And I certainly can well imagine feeling the motion of the ship for quite some time after hitting dry land. (It takes me a few hours even when we’ve taken a lunch cruise on our small boat!) Lovely signs of Fall around your home. Thank you for hosting Seasons.


  4. That’s some life changing story, J. I can see how you’d love ships forever. Have u written a story or done a painting of the trip? I don’t have those cool ships but lots of boats in the harbor down the block. Just makes me wish I had a boat (ha, I’m such an ingrate). I noticed the first real signs of fall today even though it was kind of steamy out.


  5. What an interesting memory you have of being on a ship as a child, while your whole world changed. My maternal grandmother arrived by ship from Europe to Ellis Island when she immigrated at age 18. It was the first time she saw the ocean! I often think how brave she was.

    Rian is an event here, too. It has been quite awhile since we had good rainfall.

    Have a wonderful week, Jesh!


  6. I love a beautiful ship! Sounds like quite the adventure for a little girl. Glad to see that you received some rain. Our nephew is in San Diego training to be a Wild Land Firefighter after having finished his tour with the Marines.


  7. Good morning Jesh, Thank you for your sweet comment about my post. I am sorry this comment is so late. We are visiting our son and his family about a 6 hour drive from our home and he is moving into a new home with our help. There has been no time for my computer.
    I too love ships and your story about spending a month on an ocean liner. What a thrill for a five year old girl. Even though you were young, the memory has stayed with you. That is amazing.

    Our Fall here in the NC mountains is always beautiful. My favorite time of the year. I am glad to hear you had some needed rain. A blessing for sure.
    Have a wonderful week.


  8. Speaking about ships, my husband has a LONG Drake line…Yes…THAT Drake family. Sir Francis would have been his ancestor’s nephew.
    I have a couple of sailing lines myself. I have a LONG Ringo line (yes, that Johnny Ringo) (he was a nephew of my ancestor). They came from a Dutch … PIRATE who was lost at sea and buried in the Atlantic Ocean. Another line is my Stevens line, from the captains of the Mora and the White Ship (alas…) I’ve always loved ships. Guess it is in my blood!
