Naming the Boat……….
Today we place the name ‘Freebird’ upon this vessel, it will be carried in the spirit of adventure as those upon her seek the timeless sense of water’s calling.
“To the sailors of old – The Spirit of Freebird comes to you.”
The moods upon the water are many, from tranquil to violent – we ask that this vessel be given strength to carry on, allow the keel to remain strong and that she defends from the pressures of the water.”
“To the ssailors of old – The Sspirit of Freebird comes to you.”
“Today we name this lady Freebird, and send her with that spirit into the waters to be cared for, and to care for all aboard. We ask the sailors of old and the mood of God that is the sea and in all the waters to accept Freebird, to help her through her passages, and allow her to return safely with her crew. ”
“To the ssssailors of old – The Ssspirit of Freebird comes to you.”
(well, you get the picture…….)
This summer Freebird will be our home for 60 days as we live within and experience the ‘aura’ surrounding the timeless and epic journey of the water’s flow on The Great Mississippi River
