Portsmouth Tall Ships 2009

The Tall Ships parade is the first official event of the weekend, and features the 4 main tall ships coming from various homes along the east coast (read more here: SEACOASTONLINE).  I camped out on one of the piers at Prescott Park for a vantage point that featured the Memorial Bridge.  The parade is led by a fire boat, always a crowd pleaser, followed closely by the tallest of the four ships, the USCGC Eagle.  I took a tour of the Eagle, and will feature it in Sunday’s post – a massive boat with a fascinating history.

Check back tomorrow for some interesting facts about the Eagle, and some visuals.

  1. Looking at all your pictures brings back memories of my childhood sitting on the docks at Prescott Park. I remember even on my worst day I would leave relaxed just from watching the water traffic.
    Makes me miss my home town!

    1. Thanks for checking out the site and for sharing – and hope you get to come visit soon. Portsmouth is definitely a one of a kind town! Glad you liked
