    Talking Pretty doggone cool.

    Just returned from visiting my sister in St Augustine Florida.
    She works at the lighthouse there, has been in the preservation/restoring field for many years and is sought out around the country for her expertise. Currently working on some lighthouse equipment from the Gulf Coast damaged from Katrina .

    Anyhew, there are several marine archaeologists working with her, they are investigating a Revolutionary war shipwreck, really interesting and I was invited to
    tag along and help out come summer when they dive the wreck some more.

    I know, lots of the work is tedious, but am looking forward to it... be part of history ya know?

    Sooo.. if ever in St A, visit the lighthouse and ask for Kathleen, she's pretty cool and way smart.

    Sine Timore!

    Wow, that is awesome! I don't know much about it. Where is it and how far down is it? Way cool that you were invited to "tag along."

    Sounds Way Cool!!

    I think I missed my calling, should have been an underwater archeologist. Sounds like you get be one or at least play one for a while.

    Keep us posted of your adventure.

    There is no ship name yet, they recovered the bell but still trying to piece it all together. From what they have so far, looks like a refugee ship, Loyalists from the north fled south when it became apparent the colonists were beating back the Brits and they feared repercussion.
    Looks like it is in just 30-40 feet of water. I sure will keep you updated.. I love a good mystery.

    Sine Timore!
