Sunday, September 2nd, 2013 a friend and I ventured out on a lovely afternoon to see the Tall Ships at Kingsville, Ontario. The trip was certainly worth it and we got an afternoon of exercise besides.
For those of you not in the know, the Tall Ships were on display at Kingsville, through September 2nd, 2013 and they signify an important part of history. The Town of Kingsville advertised the event as “commemorating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. As soldiers march on their stomachs, so do sailors sail and revelers revel.”: See the attached City of Kingsville link: http://www.kingsville.ca/wps/wcm/connect/KINGSVILLE/KINGSVILLE/TOURIST+INFO/Tall+Ships+Festival+Kingsville/.
We walked the peer, took photos from across the lake and photographed some other “still life.” See the attached slide show. Vendors were present along the dock and artists were out front the parking lot for a summer’s afternoon of art exposure.
The tall ships were magnificent as we knew they would be and I would like to share the pictures I took with you.
If you missed the Tall Ships in 2013 perhaps you might want to keep an eye out next year for the event. For those of you not local, the Town of Amherstburg also features the Tall Ships. See the City of Amherstburg link on the Coastal Trails Sail: http://www.amherstburg.ca/Event/Details/Amherstburg-Coastal-Trails-Sails-to-See-Festival.
The afternoon was wrapped up with a tasty hot dog and pleasant conversation with a dedicated vendor please everyone he had dealt with today was happy. A wise young man who understands the hurdles of even the best events.
The next opportunity you have to see the Tall Ships I'd take it. They are certainly worth the trip.
“The great difference between voyages rests not with the ships, but with the people you meet on them.” – Amelia E. Barr.
