“It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea..." Edgar Allan Poe

Caroline in the City did a post that featured one of my hard headed sweethearts. I used to visit the giant ship's figurehead behind the Charleston Marina years ago. He vanished. Not easy for someone of that size. I was delighted to spot him at the Antique store across from the Hollywood Town Hall and paid a visit a few years ago. I am happy to see he is still there holding court.
I jokingly offered to buy him when I was there and the owner said he cost $20,000 that day. I had a feeling the price changed according to the mood since he knew full well it would take a crane to move him.
