Tall Ships Festival, Dana Point 2011

If you guys remember, last year we went to the Tall Ships Festival in Dana Point for the first time… we had a great time and I promised to get to that jetty I could see in the distance for a better vantage point next year. Well, next year just came and went and there we were, and better than the jetty, there was a nice little beach there…

This time around, we got to mill about and hop aboard the ships (highly recommended) and then kick back for a bit while they sailed out for a dusky mock battle, which was just grand… warm sunshine, cool breezes, good people, awesome vistas, beautiful sailing ships…

Coming around the jetty and beyond the rocks, this beautiful tall masted ship was the first one out…
