Tall Ships
Tall Ships: History Comes to Life on the Great Lakes | Kaitlin Morrison
12 posts | 1 read
Seeing a tall ship under full sail is an unforgettable experience--it's like a trip back in time! From full-rigged ships that look like the pirate vessels of old to replicas of the sleek Baltimore schooners that helped win the War of 1812, tall ships still ply the waters of the Great Lakes, and each one carries its own incredible tales. More than 25 ships are featured in this amazing full-color book, complete with vessel and crew details, as well as amazing stories about famous voyages, accidents and storms. Grab Tall Ships, and set sail for adventure! The book, by Kaitlin Morrison, makes a wonderful souvenir and features the following: Details about more than 25 ships, such as the Brig Niagara, the Pride of Baltimore II and the S/V Denis Sullivan, with an emphasis on those that have visited previous Tall Ship Festivals Sea stories about each ship, including construction history, voyages, accomplishments, previous owners, accidents and storms Contact information for each vessel, so you can inquire about participating in day sails, tours or even serving on the crew

#TSC2019

There‘s still time to board the #TallShipCelebration challenge with @CrowCAH as your fearless captain.

Don‘t forget there‘s pirate treasure at the end for any who have a post for everyday‘s theme. Of those, one lucky winner will receive the four book Adventures Quartet series, as seen on day seven‘s post.

StayCurious It‘s been fun so far! 3y
CrowCAH @StayCurious thanks so much for participating!!! 🥰🏴‍☠️ 3y
Sunraven So if you decide to join late, do you make multiple posts per day to get all the themes in there? Or combine themes into one post? Or...? Just ... checking ... you know, for a friend. 😉 3y

CrowCAH @Sunraven no problem, thanks for asking! To keep it the same across the board, for those who‘ve been posting and then for anyone who wants to join, one post per theme. If that‘s too much, join and post when you can. 3y
Sunraven Maybe I‘ll just do a few of them! I was eyeing this challenge before the month started but I wasn‘t sure how much stuff I‘d be able to handle ... I love the overall theme, regardless. 😁 3y
CrowCAH @Sunraven thanks, I love the themes, too! ☠️⚓️⚔️🏴‍☠️ I thought perhaps you were trying to enter into the drawing for the Adventurers Quartet, the prize for having a post for every theme; there‘s still time. 3y
Sunraven I wasn‘t ruling it out, exactly, just sort of checking my options, haha! Good to know there is still time! 3y
CoffeeNBooks I just saw this- can't wait to join in! ☠🏴☠ 3y

Repost for @CrowCAH :
#TallShipCelebration @CrowCAH

In honor of attending the Tall Ship Celebration in JULY (19/20), Bay City, Michigan #MittenLitten, I‘ll be hosting a daily photo challenge.

I‘m doing prizes a bit differently. For any who post everyday, they‘ll be placed in a drawing for ONE WINNER to receive the four paperback book set: The Adventures Quartet, by Stephanie Laurens. Others who post daily will receive a small “tall ship” item.

CrowCAH Thank you! 🥰 3y

PathfinderNicole I wanted to go to that this year for the husbands birthday but it‘s the same time as Blue Water Fest here and he wants to do that instead ☹️ 3y
StayCurious This sounds fun! 3y
LeahBergen Oh, too bad I will be travelling for much of the month. 3y

CrowCAH @PathfinderNicole oh bummer. Tell him the Tall Ships only happen once every three years; how often does the blue Water Festival happen? Either way, I‘m sure he‘ll have a happy birthday! 3y
CrowCAH @StayCurious the challenge will be an adventure on the high seas: Pirates and nautical fun! 3y
CrowCAH @LeahBergen I hear ya, I have this mini trip to the Tall Ships, plus all my usual craziness. Hope you have successful travels! 😊 3y
Melissa_J I‘ll try to take part as often as I can 😊 3y
Melissa_J @LeahBergen I hope you are going to lots of fun places! 3y
CrowCAH @Melissa_J no problem, participate as much or as little as you can. I look forward to seeing your posts! 3y

My favorite location from a book would have to be the Caribbean Sea, specifically sailing aboard a Tall Ship! There are so many books I admire and adore that take place here: Treasure Island, POTC The Price of Freedom, Cinnamon and Gunpowder, Captain Blood, Pirate Latitudes, just to name a few.

GondorGirl What? Cynthia picked a pirate-y location? I'm so surprised! 😂😂😂 3y
CrowCAH @GondorGirl hehe, Nicole, ye know me well! 🏴‍☠️😉 (edited) 3y

Picked this book up and it highlights many of the #MittenLitten Great Lakes masted vessels who participate in the Tall Ship Challenge that happens every three years! 2019 is the next occurrence; can‘t wait!!!

Stacy_31 I love this! I‘ve never seen them myself, but my mom used to take my grandma to see the tall ships when they passed through, and they would call to tell me about them. ❤️ 4y
CrowCAH @Stacy_31 it‘s amazing! I went in 2013 and 2016 and can‘t wait to see them next year! I always take waaaay too many pictures, but they‘re just sooo pretty!!! 😍 4y
