Tall Ships Festival, part 1

Driving up the freeway to Los Angeles Harbor this past Friday, I was admittedly super excited at seeing a giant Yellow Rubber Ducky, and secondly, looking forward to the Tall Ships. I’d heard on the radio, actually, that the giant duck had been moved to another area of the Harbor from the original plan, because it was causing too much distraction from the main event, Tall Ships. Understandable from all directions. The evening was quintessential Los Angeles summertime as I walked all over, clicking away with my camera. I didn’t pay entry to the Festival itself; there was more than enough to see from all my vantage points. A most pleasant Friday evening indeed, and enough new imagination material gathered with which to daydream through the rest of the workweek…. Ahoy! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    As a fairly new sailor I find the number of sails and lines on these ships staggering. These are great shots of what I imagine was an awesome event.

    These tall ships are stunning. What a pleasure to see them.

    These pictures really launch the imagination, don’t they!

      Yes they do! Thank goodness, considering 8 hrs of dullness I must traverse mon-fri!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
