Photos ~ Talls Ships Parade of Sail

Last time around I missed the procession of the tall ships into town and wasn't about to let that happen this time around. I caught this year's Parade of Sail along side members of the Ferguson clan at a great, grassy spot along the Ruston Way waterfront. We spent a good part of the morning and afternoon along with thousands of others lining the shore ooo'ing and awing over one magnificent ship after another. Cannons from shore and on the water blasted throughout the precession and after, while we waited for traffic to subside, we were even treated to a few rockin' F-16 flyovers in prep for today's Freedom Fair air show.

Welcome, Tall Ships, we're glad to have you.
