A Let's Talk About It series

Series: Going to Sea

People from all walks of life, although mostly male until the late 20th Century, have crossed over the interface between the land and the sea to accept the challenge of living in an environment alien to human bipeds. Their experience has often inspired them to see their lives differently, for the sea experience can offer lessons—often, lessons in humility, cooperation and compassion for our fellow beings.

Dates: June 26, July 10, July 24, August 7, and August 21, 2019
