Ardelle’s Arrival in Washington, D.C.
The stalwart crew of the Pinky Schooner Ardelle arrive in Washington, D.C. to deliver Captain Harold H. Burnham to the NEA National Heritage Fellowship Awards. Mike Dyer just sent up pictures and stories which are in the new album in the Essex Shipbuilding Museum’s Facebook.
Thank you, Mike! Mike tells me that there will be stories when they return. Stay tuned for updates!

I hope you’re well. My parents are big fans of your blog and I spotted this – attached – today on East 86th Street in Manhattan! They, Larry and Marilyn Swift, suggested I send it to you.
