Earlier this week I posted about ships of space, now I come back down to earth ... change centuries ... and blog about the Duluth Tall Ships Festival. Wow! I repeat, Wow! After all, it's hard to describe seeing nine historic ships under full sail. In fact, this was the most sailing ships seen on Lake Superior since 1890! As I'm 54 years old, which is getting on in life, I still was not around back then!
I spent the afternoon on my bike, and road from French River to Canal Park. This was the way to get around, and allowed me to see the ships tacking into the wind off Brighton Beach. I hope you enjoy some of my photos and movies. I had a blast! The NorthstarNerd has a fine appreciation of technology, new or old!
