Logs & Letters of the Brigantine ROMANCE

Throughout the voyages of the ROMANCE, Mrs. Kimberly continued to observe and write. Her descriptions are vivid. Here, in installments, with permission of the Kimberlys, are the most of the logs. Many are scanned to show Gloria's sketches, some are only text. I have also included some of Gloria's announcements/letters. A Log or Logs from the 1971 South Pacific cruise and #7 & #13 are missing. If you have any of those not shown here, would you please let me know so that we can include it here. Thank You.
