Tall Ships

We visited the tall ship Lynx a couple weeks ago and returned a week later to go aboard. Harrison loved it and I found it to be a great place to pull out my camera. Unfortunately, all my camera batteries were dead! Of course the weather was perfect for picture taking - slightly overcast with blue sky reaching through but not sunny. I decided it was worth going home to get the camera and come back for more (Harrison wasn't opposed to the idea either). By the time we got back after our lunch, there was full sun directly overhead - not a wispy white cloud in sight and the ship was filled with people (unlike the morning). Bad time to take pictures - I did anyway.
These were taken from the pier, the ships take passengers on a short sea voyage. I get too motion sick to enjoy such an adventure.

Above, it's shooting off the cannons, I heard this several times a day for 14 days straight while the tall ships visited our port. Only once did it wake my sleeping child. I'm serious, it was LOUD.

Harrison checks out one of the smaller cannons before it sails.




I love all the rich texture and colors of rustic old wood, rope and other gear that the ship employed.

Harrison even got a tattoo that he proudly displays for everyone to see. (And it's still on!)

Awesome shots!!!! Makes me want to climb on board -- which is a feat for this Kansas girl in the middle of the US. =) Thanks for stopping by, and for your kind comment.
