Tall Ships in our Saginaw Bay!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

The tall ships come to Bay City every year, but this year, Bay City is the only place in MIchigan they will all be together,,TEN OF THEM!!
DD and I found a bridge that was not opened, so we got across to the other side of the river to visit mom on her 87 BD. Three of the ships were in the river, docked by 4 p.m. all ten will be there tomorrow. coming from all over.

My dad took us all over the state when we were growing up, we saw tall ships, Chinese Junks, etc back in the 50's and 60's. There are thousands of people on the bridges taking pictures, lining up for tours.
there are going to be concerts, dinner boat rides on local paddlewheel boats,etc. I have been on one of them, they are fun.. if you did not know where you were, in the dark, you could be gliding down the Seine.. glittering lights, a band playing on the upper deck, buffet dinner, dancing! All for the big price of $25 for a three hour fun time!!

I have to work later tomorrow, then we will be meeting other Sparkers in Frankenmuth,MI.. German bands, comedians, carriage rides with draft horses, wine sampling in the basement of Zehnders!! We sample our way through there, then cross the street and do the same at the Bavarian Inn!

I look forward to relaxing after lots of walking. Fresh bobka, sample beers at the Brewery (they even have my favorite, homemade root beer!).
We love walking around, people watching!! (While they are watching us.)

    Sounds like so much fun! I wish I lived close enough to join you! We saw the tall ships in Baltimore last summer. They were truly beautifully maintained and a sight to see!
HAVE FUN! emoticon
