They were amazing.
Anyone new to the blog ... John likes to collect vintage postcards (and a few new ones as well) and share them here on John's Island. If you also enjoy postcards do let me know what you think in the comment section. The card below is one of my favorites for celebrating the fall season and the art is by one of my favorite artists ... F. Winold Reiss.

One of my favorite vintage postcards!

As always, I'm watching the ships coming and going. I'm especially keeping an eye on container ship loads. For example, the Evergreen ship below has a very light load of containers. I am curious if this will foretell the effects of all the new tariff regulations. From what I've read on the web, container loads have been up recently as companies try to beat the new tariffs going into effect. The longer term effects may seriously hurt the shipping industry ... we will just have to wait and see.
