During the Center for Wooden Boats Festival, July 4th weekend and July 10th & 11th, historic tall ships The Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftain are docked in South Lake Union. The public is invited to board and tour the vessels, and they will take folks for a battle sail or even an evening fireworks sail on Lake Union. Their working crews dress in period costume and they share their enthusiasm for their ship's history and expertise in manning a classic wooden beauty. They sailed down from Bellingham, a group of school age children helping man the vessels with the crew. All great fun. This crew member was working at something while hanging off the bow.
