The Lady Louise

The Lady Louise.
 
I see an aged and dilapidated boat and can’t help but wonder the story behind it. I don’t know this boat’s story so don’t read this thinking you will hear a tale similar to the Edmund Fitzgerald or even the Minnow. It was obviously a boat that served its owners well over the years. It is a Gulf shrimper as opposed to a smaller Bay shrimper similar to the one beside it. Did the family simply abandon it due to losses or a down turn in the industry? Did the family run out of seaworthy members? Either way, I enjoy creating an image of a boat or other object that can help people to remember it in its better days. My hat is off for the crew of the Lady Louise.
