Figures I would miss this

This weekend my soon-to-be new hometown of Tacoma is hosting its first Tall Ships Festival. Perfect weather, stunning views... and three weeks before we move up there.

The lead ship here, heading to Commencement Bay from Quartermaster Harbor, is the Mexican Cuauhtemoc, followed by hundreds of pleasurecraft and the Russian tall ship Pallada


Moored in front of the Tacoma Museum of Glass is the R. Tucker Thompson


All pictures shamelessly stolen from the Tacoma News Tribune.

I believe it's also gay pride weekend in Seattle either this weekend or next...

All I ask is a tall ship
And a star to steer her by...

All right, so much for the classics.

Sure living on the California coast is nice, but I'd gladly take a perfect day in Seattle or Tacoma or Olympia or anywhere on Puget Sound over it. Only three more years till we get back.

My self-imposed exile will end up lasting about 7 years. Once I married my California girl, I never thought I'd get back.

That looked stunning. Just stunning. Thanks for the pics!
