Tall Ship Festival PDF Print

This past week was the Festival of Tall Ships in the Port of Los Angeles. There was a nice selection of Tall Ships present and, from what I heard, it was a big success with thousands visiting the ships. The SS Lane Victory was moved from its regular mooring to just behind the USS Iowa, and both ships were quite packed with visitors.

Along with many others, I enjoyed a Harbor Cruise which provided a nice close up look at the ships. An added bonus was the Big Rubber Ducky which was towed down the channel. The Harbor Cruise was a terrific way to see the ships. As in years past, the Tall Ships were really nice to see.

We all welcome the US Navy to San Pedro, with the USS Spruance and the USS Anchorage on display for Navy Days. To control access, reservations were required to tour the ships. The reservations were free, and as anticipated all had been given away. One of the fortunate ones, I was able to procure tickets to visit the ships in the morning with a friend. Here are 2 Pictures of the visiting ship of the Best Navy in the World. Pictures taken from Harbor Cruise on Fiesta Harbour Cruises.
