Lighthouse & Museum to Help Lynx Repair Ship’s Boat Contributed by Beau Phillips

Boatworks volunteers at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum will be performing a familiar task on someone else’s boat during the next month or so as they fix the breasthook, refinish the brightwork, reseal some of the planking, and perform regular maintenance on the Lynx’s historic replica ship’s boat. Today, the 16-footlong work boat serves as a reminder of a time when ships’ boats were essential aboard ships of Lynx’s ilk. The modern replica of the 1812, Baltimore, Maryland ship Lynx, carries only one historic replica ship’s boat and, like any boat, it requires regular maintenance and repair work. Maintaining these homages to the age of sail is considered the ongoing work of historic preservation, which makes the boatbuilding volunteers at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum uniquely qualified. Since 2007, Boatworks volunteers for the Lighthouse’s Archaeological Maritime Program (LAMP) have been giving museum guests a glimpse into heritage boatbuilding as they build historically

A family had spent the day moving from their farmhouse into a brand new house in a development nearby. Very early the next morning, their 6 year-old son ran in to the parent’s bedroom to wake them up. The mother dressed him and told him to play in the yard. About 20 minutes later, he came running back. “Mommy, Mommy,” he exclaimed, “Every house has a doorbell - and they all work!”

Antiques

The owner of a priceless antiques collection allowed a museum to exhibit his treasures. The movers packed the vases while the collector hovered over them. “Do be careful,” he cautioned one burly mover. “That vase is nearly two thousand years old.” “Don’t worry,” the guy replied. “I’ll treat it like it was brand new.”

After years of using the same perfumes, I decided to try something different and settled on a light, citrusy fragrance. The next day I was surprised when it was my little boy, not my husband, who first noticed the change. As he put his arms around me, he declared, “Wow, Mom, you smell just like Froot Loops!”
