Tall Ships Festival

Last week I took Dani for a date night down to Navy Pier to see the tall ships festival.  Being from Boston, she had see tall ships several times in her life before, but this was a first for me.  It was a really neat experience.

They had 10-12 boats docked at various places around the pier, many of which you could board and tour.  Since it was a tourist attraction there were a lot of people running about which sometimes made it difficult to really get to explore them like I would have liked to.  But all in all it was a lot of fun.  I think having just recently learned the fundamentals of sailing helped me really appreciate the boats all the more.  I've added a few pics to a gallery on my blog here. The rest are viewable on my flickr stream.
