Riding Tall Ships

We went for a ride on a tall ship a few weeks back. Fun! I scaled these images a bit on the page and they look a bit blurry so click on them and see the nice big clean versions.

There were two, this is the Hawaiian Chieftain. We were on the Lady Washington. I think the Lady Washington was used in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It did look a lot like a pirate type ship.

It was pretty rainy and not to windy most of the trip. The rain and clouds were kind of fun.

Look at all the rigging. We got to help haul the sails up and do some other menial sailor jobs like coiling the rope and such.

You can find Linda enjoying her self in some of these though I don't think she enjoys me taking pictures of her.

I love all the rigging. They were climbing up in it to put it up and down and make some adjustments to it. I am very tempted to volunteer for a week or two to learn how to do it and to climb up in the rigging.

An even wider shot with sailors up on the masts and all that fun. You can find out more about these particular tall ships, how to book a ride or volunteer and all that here. This is the end of this really tall post just like the ships!
