The Shipbuilder

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

North Vancouver – The Shipyard


  1. Just spent a terrific overnight in the hotel that overlooks the place in this photo. What a place! Also, when I was there I listened to “Atlantic” by Simon Winchester on my i-pod. A great read for anyone!! He has so much to say about ships, their history and their contribution to our world.

      “The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.” ~Mark Twain, attributed. I have placed “Atlantic” on my reading list! Thanks for the recommendation.
