wanting to help him. Love the hand drawn sketches.
They make some smart moves as Tom gets his photos back. Someone is out to steal them from him. They go out of their way to make things difficult for the family in everything they do.
The movie actors show up and after an exciting dinner invite the family to be in the movie about clipper ships in Orient Harbor, MA.
They find a lot of clues and piece things together. Love the sketches and learning all about the sails. we have sailed our remote control boats but only had 2 sails to worry about.
So fascinating to learn so much about their adventures.
