Tall Ships greeted by huge crowd

The big news on Thursday was the arrival of the three tall ships, the Pride of Baltimore II, the Niagara and the Madeline. Next in line in the big news department were the thousands of people who lined every inch of the ship canal and especially the prime location on the porch of the Marine Museum just in front of the Lift Bridge. The view of the people from the Pride of Baltimore II (above) was almost as exciting as the view of us from the porch. The Madeline was just in front of the Pride and the Niagara follow behind the Pride. Photo taken on July 31, 2008
