Last Stop- Pensacola
Location- Palafox Pier, facing downtown Pensacola. You certainly can't wear long sleeves out today- it was toasty-hot even this morning, and humidity- that makes your camera lens fog. This little adventure goes back to early March. Title- "Last Stop- Pensacola" (SOLD) 11x14, Oil.
This sailor was on a voyage from Oregon to the Bahamas. The wetsuit was to relieve the chill of jumping in the cold water to remove a fishing net tangled in his prop. From our brief chat, I gathered his excitement to sail the open seas, though a bit of concern over having sleep-apnea out there alone. Also, his kids (in TN, I believe) would be his first stop when returning home from his journey of a life-time.
