Sneaky Ships

The ships HMS Bounty and Lynx, docked at Portsmouth's fishing pier around 7:45 last night. They were supposed to arrive today for the Tall Ships event this weekend, but they snuck in last night!

Photo taken with my camera phone. Much better photos of the ships here.

Not bad . . .

Not a bad view, huh? I'm in NYC this weekend for my bachelorette party and this is the view of the Empire State building from the roof deck at my friend/bridesmaid's apartment. From the other side of the roof? Yes, Virginia, you can see all the way to the Statue of Liberty. :)

And so it goes . . .

My apologies for not posting for almost two weeks. On Friday night, my dear grandfather passed away after a fairly recent cancer diagnosis. I've been spending the weekend with my family, both mourning his death and celebrating his life. Will try to work my way back here soon. Thanks for your patience.
