What’s in a name?

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet?” 


― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

It is a time honored tradition that mariners name their vessels after the love of their lives. In keeping with this tradition our sailing craft, which does not yet exist, will be named SeaSea after my dear wife, Sandy. The name, not obvious, is a nickname given her years ago by her then preschool niece and nephew who found it much easier to say than “aunt Sandra”. Some poetic license was taken with the spelling, but to this day she is known in certain circles as SeaSea.

The significance of the location in the feature image above will be revealed in the next post.
