And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

I was in the crows nest, maybe 35' above the water enjoying the weather. I spied a white reef. As we drew near I saw it to be a Blue whale lounging (asleep?) on the surface. I noticed it was a bit longer fore and aft than the 95' boat I was on. It was pretty dang cool.ReplyDelete
