In Kemah: The Blessing of the fleet

From the Galveston Daily News:

“The blessing of the fleet is something that happens all around the coast,” said Tom Hults, event chairman. “It’s a tradition that goes back thousands of years. Back then, as today, commercial fishing was a very, very dangerous occupation. Because of that, we feel like this is a very important tradition.”
