Photographer's Note

I thought some of you might find this interesting. The boat you see in this photo is the JW WESTCOTT it is a mail boat. It is shown coming to pick up mail from the ship my Husband Captains and also to deliver mail to the ship as well. They call it "mail by pail" as the ship personal will lower a bucket to the smaller mail boat and they will put the mail in the bucket or tie a big bag to the bucket for larger mail to be delivered to the ship. Salutes are exchanged and thats how the ships get their mail deliveries!
( well they get them other ways too but this is one of the options. The JW Westcott is based on the Detroit River in Detroit Michigan almost under the Ambassador Bridge which connects Detroit Michigan with Windsor Ontario.
