I guess I'm whining. I just can't manage to find the time for a new post. Sorry for the same ol' thing up for so long. I guess I'll just find a photo to add to this so we can all enjoy something else for a change.
I'm a fan of Patrick O'Brian who wrote the Master and Commander series of twenty novels about life in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars, featuring the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey and Dr. Stephen Maturin who serves as ship's surgeon. The beautiful sailing ship in the photo is the Rose which was used in the movie "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World." If you enjoy historical novels that deal with naval history, I recommend this series. The movie was pretty cool, too. Here's a picture of Russell Crowe as Captain Jack in the movie.
