Visiting Saint Mary’s College of Maryland, USA

(September 21-22, 2016): We stopped here just for an overnight rest. After dropping the anchor near the Saint Mary’s College of Maryland, we took a dinghy to the school dock and walked in the city. Very historic! We also stopped by the school cafeteria and enjoyed the BUFFET foods. Wandering in the school, I found below poem written on the wall in the college.

blessing the boats
by Lucille Clifton, 1936 – 2010
(at St. Mary’s)

may the tide
that is entering even now
the lip of our understanding
carry you out
beyond the face of fear
may you kiss
the wind then turn from it
certain that it will
love your back may you
open your eyes to water
water waving forever
and may you in your innocence
sail through this to that
