Well, I finally made my way down to Boston Harbor to see those magnificient classic sailing ships docked on the waterfront. Boston is one of official ports of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge, a regatta that started in Spain and will end up in Ireland.
Below are some shots I took. The rest are in my Tall Ships Sail Boston Photo Album.

There’s such a air of romance that surrounds these majestic vessels. You can’t help but fantasize about what it would be like to chuck the day job for a life of high seas adventure and exotic ports of call, accompanied by a crew of cute sailor boys, of course!
