Tallships in Oceanside Harbor

In mid-January, I learned that two tallships would sail into Oceanside Harbor and provide tours for folks who wanted to look at the ships. So, I took off from work after a half-day, and brought the whole family down to the harbor.

We walked out to the end of the North jetty, and watched the two ships make their way into the harbor. The first ship fired off a canon as it entered the jetty - thankfully, their aim was horrible!

After both ships had docked, tours were provided by the crew of each ship, which actually live aboard the ships. The quarters appeared to be quite cramped, and the lack of personal space would take some getting used to, I imagine.

We went with our friends, and all the kids had a great time - I think they may have even learned a thing or two! Below, Peter and his buddy Andy take a quick break aboard the Hawaiian Chieftain.
