HMS Bounty Tragedy

On October 29, 2012 the HMS Bounty met her fate off the coast of North Carolina.  The US Coast Guard braved the conditions being dealt by Hurricane Sandy to rescue fourteen of the 16-member crew. The captain remains missing and one crew member is confirmed dead as of this post.

Eileen and I went to visit the HMS Bounty when it was here at City Dock in Annapolis. It truly was a magnificent ship and it is so hard to believe that she is on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. Here are a couple of the photos that I took on June 17, 2012 in Annapolis Harbor...
