American Spirit Welcomes a New Member to its Family

by User Not Found | May 17, 2013

We recently received this wonderful story from our American Spirit hotel manager, Chelsea Hargis:

The crew of the American Spirit is proud to announce its adoption of Spirit, a female Orca from the L Pod.  Although the Orca Adoption Program, supported by The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor, WA, offered many different killer whales to adopt, the unanimous final decision was Spirit.

“We just knew that Spirit was the one for us.  Her name represents our ship well and her story is just as telling as our own ship’s story,” Captain Johnson shared with crew and passengers.

Born in 1971, Spirit has seen many portions of the waterways, including the western side of San Juan Island and the Straight of Juan de Fuca, where the American Spirit cruises through on its journey from Friday Harbor to Port Angeles, WA.

Mate Edmonds remarked to the Hotel Manager, “I’m hoping to look out one of these days from the pilot house and see Spirit.  It would really make these Puget Sound trips even better than they already are.”

With that being said, the American Spirit crew will be extra vigilant the remaining trips so as to not miss seeing their new family member, displaying a nick midway down her dorsal fin and a closed saddle patch on both her sides.

Welcome aboard, Spirit!

    The report was called Clocks and replique montres, and the former had as much space as the latter. Alastair Guild, seemingly author of the whole report, was bemused by the rise of the watch: "Watches have become just as much a means of expressing lifestyle and personality as the car you drive or the clothes you wear." Some watch-owners even have more than one, he confided with astonishment.One story, headlined "Life of a visiting longines replica clockmaker", met John Redfern, a maker and restorer who used "modern techniques to improve on designs from the past". Mr Redfern was unhappy that much of the clockmaker’s art might be lost: "There is no proper horological training available. The recent upsurge in interest and the value of antique clocks and breitling replica watches has created a demand for craftsmen who do not exist. This demand is seemingly satisfied by a spate of probably well-meaning but poorly trained and totally inexperienced and incompetent hands, doing more damage than good."
