Anchors are popping up everywhere these days and we love them! The anchor is perfect to incorporate into your nautical beach home interior design.
To “weigh anchor” is to bring it aboard a vessel in preparation for departure. The phrase “anchor’s aweigh” is a report that the anchor is clear of the sea bottom and, therefore, the ship is officially underway.
“Anchors Aweigh” is often misspelled as “Anchors Away,” leading to confusion of the terms and the misunderstanding that it means ‘to drop anchor’ (i.e. ‘away’).
Anchors Aweigh (1906 version) Taken from the Naval History & Heritage Command: “Anchors Away, my boys, Anchors Aweigh. Farewell to college joys, We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay. Through our last night on shore, Drink to the foam, Until we meet once more. Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.”
