Ahoy! Mateys




"I must go down to the seas again,
to the lonely sea and the sky,



And all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by"
- John Masefield


The Tall Ships have started arriving in the port of Halifax, and my heart swells when I gaze upon the forests of masts and sails, flags and rigging.

Tall Ships Nova Scotia

Maybe I'll see some of you down on the waterfront this weekend!

I want to go! I was supposed to today, but Sunday is my boyfriends birthday and he wanted to go home for the weekend. His birthday won out over ships, but I am hoping to see them next week...

I'm going to try and go this weekend with my family. I know the girls would love to see them. :)

Oh, what a glorious sight it surely must be. Living in IN, we are landlocked. How I miss being near Lake Erie. No, it was not an ocean, but summers were truly beautiful there. We ventured up to Put-In-Bay at least once each summer. Now the pond in my back yard has to suffice, lol.
Enjoy your weekend.
Blessings,

After the nasty weather the day before, we couldn't have asked for a better day yesterday. I walked around the waterfront a bit at lunch and the tall ships are amazing. Wish I had had time to see them all. Maybe tomorrow.

Usually in January or February they come to Tampa and I go to see them -- awesome to say the least!!!
Enjoy!

Is this the same convoy that was in Newport a few weeks ago? They're wonderful!
