The Hawaiian Chieftan & Lady Washington

If you didn’t know I was talking about ships, that title probably seems a little strange. But I am talking about ships. So, no need to worry, there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This last weekend our family went up to see the 18th century reproduction ship, The Lady Washington, in port. I was not forgetting my camera for anything.

It’s a little hard not to be so excited about ships after watching and reading so much Horatio Hornblower…

Anyway, though we didn’t get to tour them like we thought, it was still a great day for photography. Plus, the other ship, The Hawaiian Chieftan was there too, so more pictures! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are the shots I got:

That was the first mast we saw coming around the corner out of the parking lot. My brother was teasing me in a Steve-monkey-voice saying “Excited! Excited!” over and over again while I was taking pictures. XD Okay, I looked aย little excited…

The Lady out sailing. Doesn’t she look out of place with all those houses in back?

… and she’s docked again. Now I can get more pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A sort of welcome mat on where they climb aboard.

The ship’s bell.

The Lady herself. The Chieftan looked to shifty to merit a picture of him.

Cool reflection.

There was a block and tackle hanging over the water for some reason. Oh well. It made a good picture.

Lotsย of ropes.ย

Rigging.
