In the 60’s the fishing vessels would fill the Harbor waiting to be Blessed.

    I have told my husband for years about the Blessing of the Fleet. My parents moved us to Albany NY and we went as a family every year. Now, we are both retired and we own a company so we go wherever we want now. The then picture was how I remembered, the Now one just breaks my heart. We will be there this year though, maybe make some new friends, and look up old friends. I can’t wait. I would like to know all the details for this year! Thank you to whomever can help me!
