We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came. - John F. Kennedy

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came. - John F. Kennedy (JFK)

John F. Kennedy had a fondness for the sea. We've put a famous JFK quote on a photo of Nantucket harbor here. The Kennedy's are certainly known for their ties to Hyannisport than Nantucket, but they also have some history on Nantucket.

There was actually a bomb shelter built for JFK on Nantucket in 1961. The shelter was said to be a "Jet assist takeoff fuel bottle storage area." The shelter was never actually used though.

One thought on “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came. - John F. Kennedy”

    We Love the Kennedy's they're always in our prayers.

    You must know he was the first president I voted for and workEd in his campaign.
    I'love never forget where and what I
    was doing when the enemies took him from the world. I can feel the hurt and the pain as I'm writing these few words what a great lost.

    Thanks
    LGH, Rev./Pastor
