While not going so far or daring so much this intrepid pair, LHR staff will be away next week (June 24 to 28).

See you in July!

Henry M. Jones and the coconut party, no date

Ah, the tropics! Here Henry M. Jones, author of Ships of Kingston standing at the far left, and four unidentified friends enjoy a refreshing treat under the palms.  The woman may be Henry’s wife Abby Bosworth Holmes Jones, though between the hat and the coconut, it’s difficult to tell. The dog is also anonymous.
