The title is kind of a "Winnipesaukee thing".

The James River wasn't just for recreation, but has a WWII history.

Me, too—with my Dad—a PBY pilot in the Pacific Southwest, off PNG.

...think "Rabaul", "Bismarck-Sea", and Port Moresby. On leave, he body-surfed in Australian surf, and unintentionally, knocked out Admiral Halsey!

I think I might have mentioned that—but no—I didn't...

At all times, I like my feet firmly on the ground...
