Faces of the Sea : Thank You Seafarers

On June 25,  2013, we are one with the world to pay tribute to the 1.5 million seafaring professionals who are dubbed as the "Unsung Heroes” of the Seas..."The Seafarers." 
This year's theme features the "Faces of the Sea." 
To the men, I sailed with THANK YOUfor the lessons learned and the memories. 
To those, that I came to know by chance or through the social media, your stories at sea are all worthwhile to feature.
There is always a reason to smile when the vessel gets into port after a 19-day sea passage from South Africa to USA east coast or vice versa. Whether to unwind ashore, receive snail mails and packages, do some shopping, visits the place tourist attraction, feel the culture, blend with the locals or simply wait for a homeward flight.
