Patriotic Canon

photos by Sean Jamieson
Gondolier Matt "Mateo" Ericson rowing in Coronado
The folks at The Gondola Company down in Coronado have got a real
knack for swapping out the traditional canon for something a little
more seasonally appropriate. 
I particularly enjoyed what they did for St. Patrick's Day
The canon, of course, is that little brass fixture about midway down the
crest of the foredeck. 
Some hold flags, others hold roses, this one holds a book and a torch.
Sound familiar? It should, maybe you've seen this shape before.
Yes indeed, there she is: Lady Liberty,
showing up just in time for Independence Day.

Happy 4th of July, my friends.

Thanks for the great photos, Sean.
I wish I'd thought of it first.
