Blessing Of The Fleet In Morehead City

Sailboat

Another emotional Blessing Of The Fleet ceremony took place at the port in Morehead City Sunday morning.

Prayer, music, fellowship, and an absolutely gorgeous day kicked off the emotional tribute.

The Blessing Of The Fleet, aims to pay tribute and honor the men and women who've lost their lives, as commercial fishermen, working tirelessly day in and day out, through severe weather to bring us seafood fresh from the sea, to our dinner table, but many have died over the years doing so.

Over a dozen boats took part in this years procession, tossing wreaths from the bow, as they remember lives lost at sea.
