    This past weekend in Lunenburg NS, there appear a few 'tall ships',...not the real big ones, but a nice little selection. Along with them there were a few other historic vessels, and a very modern Bermudian 'sloop'.

    This beautiful schooner caught me eye. it was an Alden design built for then Col George Patton
