My brother, Cass, attends Mass Maritime Academy where he is studying marine engineering. As part of his study he is required to spend a certain amount of time out on the ocean training on a ship. Just before Christmas he boarded the SS Blue Ridge and began his training. Over the last couple weeks the ship made its way up the Atlantic towards New England. Last week my parents were able to stop by and see Cass while the ship was docked in Providence, Rhode Island. Here are a few pictures my mom took while they visited:
