The other night when we were at Boulevard Park on the bay, there were two tall masted ships in the harbor. We noticed them. But didn’t really remark about them. Then out of the blue, one of them shot a cannon at the other and the sound was loud and deep; it shook my kidneys! i really don’t know if that’s the organ I feel when there is a loud deep sound like that, but that’s what I imagine it is. Then I remembered THIS ARTICLE about Lady Washington and Hawaiian chieftain.
The imagination runs wild thinking what that would have been like 200 years ago with real cannon fire being shot!
