Overcast, raining and cold
I received a short but nice note from Mr. Larry Lannan giving me permission to go ahead. What I liked about Boston Harbour Auctions is that the auction company has a great auction coming up on November 16, 2014. There are many interesting items coming to market, but I found beautiful model ships, and a nice model steam engine. These aren't really "toys", but if had these around the house, I'm be looking and even touching to see all the parts that are no longer on today's ships. These are the models that you've read about in every classic book such as Moby Dick by Herman Melville. There are terms to these models that I never heard before, and had to check to see that the spelling was correct (which it was) in 1 example.
I have "fresh water" in my veins, but enjoy the sea as well. And when it comes to any thing related to the ocean I am fascinated. Whenever you go to any city on the sea or ocean you most likely to find a museum. The world was discovered by travel on the oceans, and of course civilizations changed as well.
