Holiday treat: my grandparents’ honeymoon log book

Cover scan of my grandparents log book

A few days before Christmas I got a package from an uncle with whom I have long since ceased exchanged gifts. It was a medium thickness, letter-sized envelope and left me quite curious. Upon opening it on Christmas morn’ I discovered a very pleasant surprise: it was a copy of the log book my grandparents had kept on their honeymoon, a three-week cruise around Biscayne Bay, Florida in a 21′ sloop! I had never seen the original and never, in fact, knew it existed. In further fact, I had not, heretofore, been aware what they did on their honeymoon. I have yet to read it, but it is a pretty cool treasure and so nice of my uncle to make copies for all their descendants.
