I saw the Tall Ships this past weekend. So, they were tall, and surrounded by lots of people, many of whom were standing in amazingly-long lines to board each one. I passed on the lines, just viewed from dry land. They were fun to see, interesting to read what was posted. I got the sense they were not exactly historic, but rather modern ships made in the tradition of tall sailing ships--not sure why, but they're pretty I say. This was part of a big to-do put on by Sail Boston, so if anything it was a beautiful day, a great event, and something fun/different to see in the harbor.
