See it Sunday, Mellow Yellow, Blue Monday, Midweek Blues / Tall Ships at Dana Point, California USA

 Two of 7 tall ships participating in a sunset parade at Dana Point, California.
The Tall Ship Festival is an annual event here and we especially like sitting out on the breakwater to view the sunset parade.
The "ships" glow in the awesome light of sunset.

We have a tall ships festival this weekend in Erie, PA too. I had to work on the day of the parade of sails. I would have LOvED to see the ships with their sails raised. My husband and I went to see the tall ships yesterday. I'll be posting pictures one day soon.

Hi Caroline,
I love sailing and the sea ... But I am far from the sea .. But there have always been sailors in the family!
Thank you for your comment. Excellent weekend!

Carolyn,

Would you prefer living in this era of sail boats or the Queen Mary?

I don't know what to choose.
