Tall Ships On The Father Of Waters

It’s Navy Week in New Orleans, and when I walked down to the Mississippi River for a stroll along the River Walk I discovered to my delight that a number of tall ships were docked along the pier.

There is something remarkably appealing about large sailing ships, with their masts towering far above, furled sails, and flags snapping in the breeze, all shined and polished and painted for display.  When you have the opportunity to see them on the mighty Mississippi, it’s an even bigger treat.
