Here come the ships!

Living in a port city has its perks, the main one being a magnificent view to enjoy everyday. Every season and often from day to day the appearance of our great lake can vary greatly. Winter storms can bring a gray pallor to the waters and wicked waves to watch. Summer days bring out the perfect, brilliant blue to highlight the pristine white sails of the boats bobbing along. A day like today is a special treat as it only comes around once a year - the tall ships have come into port! This year nine tall ships have made their way to Duluth and lines will be long for Duluthians and our visitors who want to get a closer look at these amazing vessels. We made our way down the Lakewalk to take in the sight of the ships cruising toward the Aerial Lift Bridge which would rise to welcome them into our harbor. I can't wait to get a closer look in the next few days!
