What a fun day we had.
On Mothers day M.O.M. and M.O.D. took us over to the harbor to see some really pretty ships.
This first ship is named the 'Hawaiian Chieftain'.

Then there is M.O.M.'s favorite...
This is the 'Lady Washington' and she is one of the Tall Ships seen in the great "Pirates Of The Caribbean" movie series.
She is a beautiful ship...especially up close with all the vintage details on her.
But actually, M.O.M. thinks it's pretty cool because Johnny Depp stars in all those movies.  Oops...I mean 'Captain Jack'....sorry M.O.M.!!

These beautiful Tall Ships call our harbor their home port. And every time they return to port there are several cannons that shoot off a salutes to the 2 ships....a very loud display indeed!

The ships attend many events along the coast and also in Pudget Sound near Seattle, through out the boating season.
And when they are moored in our harbor they give river tours to our visitors.
If you look closely you can see several guest passengers on the ships enjoying a beautiful ride up the river and back to the docks.

It seems we find new adventures weekly here in our new little town.  We thought the sea was the best but this little town is full of surprises!


  1. We love being by the sea! What great ships - and yes, D likes Johnny Depp too! They filmed parts of the last 'Pirates' film near us in Greenwich! We didn't get to see him though!
