The Kalmar Nyckel
« on: July 14, 2018, 11:35:10 AM »
Delaware's tall ship will be visiting New Castle, Delaware (my home town) August 22nd to September 3rd. If you would like to tour a 17th century replica ship and visit a historic 17th century town, take advantage of this event. There is a wonderful pub just down the street from the wharf, Jessop's Tavern, which has good food and a nice selection of beers.  See links below:

If ony I lived closer, this looks like it would be so much fun . Perhaps one day she will sail around the Gulf of Mexico !!
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Battery Park is only a mile away from me, so I will probably bicycle over to visit. In nice weather there is also a hot dog cart on the side of the wharf.
