Exciting Events: Tall Ships in Northern Ireland and Maine (USA)
I wish I was two people and could attend both of these events! Mark the dates in your calendards for July and August!
“The port of Belfast will be transformed to host the grand finale celebrations of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge from August 13-16 when thousands of people are expected to flock to both sides of the River Lagan for the massive four-day festival.”
On the other side of the big pond, one of my favourite maritime museums has something great to offer, too. Every Canadian’s heart should beat faster upon reading this news:
“In conjunction with our Net Worth Fisheries exhibit, the replica of the famed Grand Banks fishing schooner BLUENOSE II will be docked and open for tours July 5th,6th , and 7th. Generations of Atlantic Canadians have grown up with stories of the Original Bluenose Nova Scotia, her Captain Angus Walters and Bluenose II.”
Check out their other summer activities as well!
Talking about the Maine Maritime Museum: I can only recommend once again Chris Hall’s excellent blog,
I can’t praise it enough. Interesting, educational, but most of all, lots of fun! 🙂
