Onn Sunday, February 19th, the TS Kennedy returned to her Taylors Point dock, on the campus of Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Parents, grandparents, siblings, girlfriends, boyfriends, aunts, uncles, neighbors, and friends arrived on campus, many carrying colorful homemade signs. When the training ship rounded the final bend in the Cape Cod Canal and became visible to the crowds gathered on the shore, a deafening cry went up and didn't let up.
It took quite a while for the cadets and crew members to begin disembarking the TS Kennedy, but those on the dock waited patiently and remined in a festive mood. Finally, cadets began making their way down the gangway, many struggling under the wait of their bulging seabag. There were screams, shouts, hugs and kisses as cadets located their loved ones.
Here are an assortment of photos for you to view. This will be your final glimpse of the TS Kennedy and Massachusetts Maritime Academy cadets.
