“Sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Unknown author

This nautical image was created from one of my grandmother’s photos, taken aboard the “Herzogin Cecile”. Pamela Cristobel Bourne was my father’s mother, who met my grandfather (Sven Eriksson) when he was the ship’s captain. She was an avid photographer, author and traveler, who recorded her adventures in two books, “Out of the World” and “The Duchess”. The ship is a big part of our family history and was wrecked off the coast of Devon in 1939.
