Dear Mom,

The world knows you as Nancy Blount, the business woman who was a trailblazer in the marine industry, who worked her whole life to be the success she is today. You're all of those things to me, but most importantly, I know you as Mom and now, as Grandma to my daughter, Petra. 

Throughout my life you have taught me the importance of hard work, dedication and integrity. You also taught me how to stay true to myself. You have always been there to encourage me and make sure I understood the value of being kind to others. These are some of the many things that have shaped me into the person I am today, and I can't thank you enough.

It's been so great getting to work with you, side by side these past few years. Small ship cruising is our legacy and I'm excited to carry it on. I hope your Dad would be proud of all we've done for Blount Small Ship Adventures. I'd like to think he'd be excited for our 2019 itineraries like Panama and the Islands and Maine and New Brunswick. I love planning these trips with you, side by side just like you did with him. Luther had a gift for bringing people joy, and you have it, too. Petra and I would be so lucky to have it passed down to us. 

I love you, Mom. Thank you for everything. 

Your son, Pete



Michaelynn (Mickey) and I are very much looking forward to another wonderful cruise. The Maine/New Brunswick cruise this July, 2018 will be our fifth cruise with Blount. Our first was in 2006. Several times while docked in the various ports people have come up to the ships asked me "is this your yacht?" We plan to arrive one day before the cruise starts (July 9th). This will be the first time that we will be doing this. We will be coming into Boston on Amtrak Acela first class from home and return the same way. Edward N. Gerson

Great tribute for Mother's Day. My two trips to Belize/Guatemala were great. I look forward to the Maine/New Brunswick trip.

What a lovely tribute from your son Nancy. We have enjoyed all three of our cruises with Blounts Small Ship Adventures and hope to do more when we again visit from Australia. We are always telling our friends 'down under' how Blounts give us an unique opportunity to visit such wonderful and interesting places on the 'Grande Mariner' and 'Grande Caribe' Congratulations.
