Dave -

Yup. I recognize the "angle" by the stern of the boat in the second picture, that's where Paul went "splash". But I don're recognize the street view. Is the fountain with the ship the front of the Princess?

I remember Paul's splash very well. The schooner was moored facing towards town and Jerry Brown & I were painting the anchors. We had noticed Paul practicing riding his bike up/down the dock and he'd been having stopping and putting his foot down on the "bull rail" (to prevent things from going off the dock into the water). We told him to be careful. Next thing we know people are running down the dock laughing and pointing. Jerry & I knew what it was and just secured our paint (Tabor Boy green), got a line and tossed it to Paul in the water, "Tie her off and we'll haul her in."

Just heard from Jessica Cox on Sep 23rd (her birthday and I sent her an email). She, the kids, and grandkids are doing fine.

Were you there when Paul Perry rode his bike of the end of the dock? Not a moped a bicycle.

Lost my bearings. Is this the side by the road? Was Smatz's Cycle Shop to the right?

How was Will? Lady Jessica? Last saw Sir Harry & Lady Jessica in 1988.

Not any more. Check out where the old guard shack and house used to be!

Hard to believe. Looks like no more scaling the wall to sneak into the Princess.

Jim, I was in Hamilton last weekend to visit with Will Cox and watch the Tall Ships sail to Charleston. This is a picture of the same place in June 2009!
