We three ships

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 30, 2015, 12:53 AM
So this year, I have had the great good fortune of being able to see three replicas of tall ships from the same time period, the 16th century.

The first was the Mayflower II, replica of the Mayflower (of course) that brought the pilgrims to New England, and which wintered in Mystic, Conn., to receive some much-needed repairs:

The second was the Half Moon, a replica of Dutch-English explorer Henry Hudson's ship, Halve Maen:

And the third is El Galeon, a replica of the San Pelayo, one of the galleons that brought the Spanish to establish the oldest European settlement in North America, St. Augustine, Fla.:

I feel very fortunate to have been able to see these beauties this year.

In other news, it was about time I made a folder for all the ships I've been snapping the last three years:…
