On board

We are having a lovely time here in Port Orchard.  The second day we were here, two tall ships -Hawaiian Chieftan and Lady Washington sailed in. They were open for walk on tours, so mom and I went and carefully went aboard.  The Hawiian Chieftan is not an old ship, built in 1998 or so – a craft built with new technology used, and vintage looks.  The Lady Washington was under  construction in 1988,when my parents visited Grays Harbor – and saw the shipbuilder lay the keel for her.  Very  exciting to see !

Of course the crews were dressed in clothing like out of the “Pirates”  movies.  In fact, the Lady Washington was used in the first movie as the ship the “Interceptor”.  The photo above I took from our backyard here in our rented  house.  Having such a great time, trying to adapt to my lovely tiny laptop, so enjoy the photos, it is easy to upload photos, but tough to type !

Rained last night, now overcast and cool  Very nice….enjoy your day !
