..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

Is this Sailor leaving his ship to go on “Liberty” or is he coming back to his ship after having been on “Liberty” for the weekend ?
IMO: He is probably coming back to his ship, since it appears that the photo was taken in the very early morning hours and his facial expression makes it look as though he is “wiped out” after a “wild weekend” !! And, he still has his sleeve cuffs turned up, which some Sailors do when they are off ship. I’ve ‘been there, done that’ !!
