A beautiful ship.  I just wish she was including the Great Lakes in her tour, although the western Lakes were settled by the US after she was launched.  I'd like to see her in person.

Nice. Looks like she's coming up the Potomac to Alexandria. I'll definitely have to get down there for some pics.

That would be great - if you can make it then, please post them.

They should have a rousing play of the '1812 overture' to accompany her  :D

Cool to watch all those masts etc come together, to appreciate what it takes to make any tall ship.

Leaving for Yorktown this afternoon -

My wonderful, magnificent, and generally best husband ever, was able to get the last sea side room in a hotel by the dock where she will be - I hope the weather cooperates!
