 They were aiming for Virginia and landed about 500 miles to the north. Lucky for them a local Indian dude in this 'vast howling wilderness' came by for a chat — in English! (Odds about 1 in a million of that happening.)

 When I was a kid, what I most wanted to draw was this kind of ship, but couldn't get the rigging and stuff quite right (still can't as you may have noticed, even when looking at a picture).

 But my kind grandmother said it didn't matter, because you can feel the wind in sails in my pictures. That was the best art lesson of my life.

 Later found a quote, I think from aLeonardo notebook: "What is the point of paint of painting a stormcloud if the storm be not therein?" Another great lesson, or maybe the same lesson.

 An exciting drawing ... so real ... not looking for the rigging ... awed by the beautiful ship and the turbulent sea.
