No, this is not the last shot at a blog, but I do believe we have bought our last shot glass, which is a good thing since we ran out of shelf space anyway. So now seems a great time to share the collection with our readers so that you too can enjoy the beauty of this fine art collection.
For those who came late to the party, we decided to collect shot glasses because we were limited on space, did not need thimbles and shot glasses were readily available most places we visited. Now we did not buy one in every port or else we would be up to our ears in shots. But here in sets of three is what we did acquire.
Cabbage Key, Key West and the Miami Seaquarium.
Hollywood Beach, St. Augustine and Blue Springs State Park along the St John’s River.
South Carolina, Parris Island(my favorite) and Beaufort, SC.
Fort Sumter, Lighthouses of North Carolina and Southport where Jan docked in a 29 mph wind.
Norfolk, the USS Wisconsin and Yorktown.
Fredricksburg Battlefield, National Marine Corps Museum at Quantico and a silver one from Washington, DC.
King Kong on the Empire State Building, Penetanguishene, Ontario, Canada and Henry’s where everyone goes to eat fish.
Soo Locks at Sault Ste. Marie where Ziggy re-entered the US, Mackinac Island and Petoskey where we found Petoskey stones.
Wisconsin Maritime Museum at Manitowoc, Chicago and Grant’s Farm in St. Louis where the Clydesdales live.
And finally, good things come in small packages and the last shot was found in Alton, IL.
So there you have it, a fabulous collection for the kids to fight over one day when we have gone to the planting. They will look good on someone’s shelf and they can remember our great adventure.
