..... 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 !!

On 11 January 1820, the schooner Lynx, commanded by Lieutenant J. R. Madison, departed St. Mary’s, Georgia bound for Kingston, Jamaica to continue her service suppressing pirates. She was never heard from again. Despite the schooner, USS Nonsuch’s, search for Lynx, no trace of her or her 50 man crew was ever found.
Pride II and Virginia, sailing under everything. Though, Virginia did set her awning as a sail during this year’s Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race and she doesn’t have that up here. If this doesn’t make you want to sail, we can’t be friends.
