Beautiful photos! I just had to google Fleet of Flowers and see what it was all about - sounds like a very moving ceremony/event.
It was very touching. We didn't go out with the fleet, but went out later to scatter my stepdad's ashes off Depoe Bay.
I was wondering what all the greenery on the boat was. I bet that was gorgeous!
It was. It was a beautiful day and memorial.
What a wonderful tribute and remembrance! The photos are beautiful, Les. I imagine it was a very touching ceremony.
It was quite touching, although we had our own private 'ceremony' after The Fleet of Flowers. We chartered a boat and scattered my stepdad's ashes off the point near Little Whale Cove, where my folks live. The weather was absolutely perfect and nobody got seasick! :)
What a lovely ceremony.
Thanks, Lisa. I now know where I want my ashes scattered...
What a beautiful tradition--I wondered what the greenery was but I bet that provided such a feeling of calm. Such stunning pictures!
It is a beautiful tradition and I'm glad we got to see the fleet go out. We headed out on our own chartered boat after the fleet returned.
