The 1926 Schooner Adventure has returned to Gloucester after furthering its educational mission with the World Ocean School and about 400 Boston school kids. The 122-foot National Historic Landmark vessel also made a two-week voyage up the coast of Maine, showing the Gloucester flag at Portland, Boothbay, and Rockland and welcoming hundreds of visitors aboard.

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus (1913-1960)
Born to poverty in Algeria, then a French colony, Camus lost his father the following year in the First World War. His precocious brilliance was recognized with scholarships to the University of Algiers where he studied philosophy. During the 1930’s he was active in the French Communist Party and the Algerian People’s Party and began WWII as a pacifist, later joining the fight against the Axis. He gained prominence for his books The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus and is often linked to the existentialism of Sartre, although Camus himself referred to his philosophy as Absurdist, which posits that we ourselves must create meaning in our lives. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, but was killed in an automobile accident two years later.
