Torrie and Morgen boarded The Lady Washington, and set sail. We stayed and watched as they left. About that time the gal that was doing the ticket check for the Hawaiian Chieftain announced that they has 6 extra tickets so if you wanted to sail but did not have a ticket please speak up. I shouted!!! Then I turned and told Stuart that we were going!!!!
So away we went! I have not had that much fun in years! The best part, Stuart and I were on one ship, and the girls were on the other, I could see them but did not have to referee any arguments, or tell Morgen to stop touching stuff for 3 HOURS!
This is the Lady Washington, she is so pretty!
Then, she fired at us!!! Well is was a battle cruise so yea I guess that was to be expected!
Then we fired back at her, she ran away! We circled each other for about an hour and a half, trading shot. When both ships ran out of shot, we pulled along side each other and serious hostilities broke out... WATER BALLOONS!!!This was at the end of the day they were putting the sails away before we headed back to dock. I am terrified of heights, no way could I do this job!
Of course they were wearing fall protection.
Stuart and I on the Hawaiian Chieftain. Look at that smile on his face. I had to drag him on the ship but once he was on he had as much if not more fun then the girls and I all together! Me! Morgen! Torrie! My ship, the Hawaiian Chieftain!Oh and by the way......
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend also.
Oh I forgot to mention, if you are interested in learning more about these wonderful ships, or want to sail on board, check out their website at http://www.historicalseaport.org/web/index.html
These ships are used most of the year as teaching vessels for young children.
