This past weekend, the Tall Ship Festival came to our home port of Philadelphia – the ships were lined up right outside our marina! While we (sadly) still do not have sails on, we did motor out to see the ships from the water (a good choice, since the riverfront itself was absolutely packed!).
I have *never* seen that much traffic out on the river… everyone was out on their boats checking out the tallships. What amazed me is actually how well everyone behaved – with most boats neatly lining up by the ships, and respecting the boats around them. Very few idiots zipping around & cutting other boats off etc… (and the police pulled them over right quick when it happened). Just a wonderful day on the water!
