Sisters Under Sail

Flynn and I were up early this morning. 
We knew the tall ships had arrived early in St. Catharines and we
wanted to get to Port Dalhousie before the crowds.

As we parked the spy car in the Royal Canadian Legion parking
lot we got our first glimpse of the ships.

The crews were already getting ready for the day.

Here are a few crew members of The Unicorn
out of Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA. 

They are here as a part of the War of 1812
celebrations of 200 years of peace
with our American neighbo(u)rs.

We stopped to talk to some of them.
I was a bit shocked to realize I was talking to the captain who is my size.
I guess I thought sea faring captains would be
like maybe 8 feet tall, weigh 300 pounds and have tattoos.

I swear if the captain had been wearing the big pirate hat like I told her
she should wear I would have ripped it off her head and taken command
of the ship right then and there!

Every woman should have the chance to sail the seven seas!
Regardless of her age and decrepitness!! 
(I can hear you all cheering in agreement)
Anyway, as of the mo, until I get
this little age thing sorted out
I'm not qualified
but if you know anyone Canadian or American
who is qualified here's the info:

And send me a post card, will ya?
