Random Tugs 145

I will be back tomorrow with close-ups of L’Hermione and more, but Bjoern of New York Media Boat sent me the very intriguing photo below.  Recognize it?  Answer follows.  Clue:  Elizabeth Anna. Well, L’Hermione  (pronounced LAIR me un) will find her way into more of these photos.  Here’s the venerable W. O. Decker.  Click and scroll […]

Sixth Boro Snow Day 5

Thank the verizon gods for internet service after a few more days’ drought.  Click here for previous snowy posts.
