Headed down to the inner harbor Saturday to check out all the tall ships for the Bicentennial! (200 yrs. since the War of 1812). Lots of South American ships, although made in Germany in the 1930's then bought by the countries for use as training ships.
What did we see?
Blue angels and planes dipping and diving overhead (our view looking up, no planes in sight here, everyone stopped what they were doing to watch in awe!) Festive South American music streamed from all the ships, kind of out of character considering their militaristic nature...
A flag the size of a building- from Columbia (reminded me of an Ellsworth Kelley painting...)
Someone tried to give us their baby (jokingly)
Good Australian Navy jazz band (singer sounded like a lighter version of Russel Crowe when speaking...) Interpretive dance moves by the crowd..sort of..!
A giant eagle
Scantily clad figure heads...
Occasional cannon fire from the gun ports of the Constellation. Spooked everyone!
Waited in line for an hour to get an ice cream, my whole arm is sunburned! Managed to get a huge eclair in Little italy for dessert :D
All in all a good day.
