The trip to Muskegon was fairly uneventful with very little wind to sail. The tall ships once again gathered, this time outside the Chicago inner harbor. There was a large crowd at the end of Navy Pier, and after much cannon fire from the shore and from many of the ships ( not ours of course) we tied up at Navy Pier on Tuesday evening the 24th of August. I left the ship almost immediately to visit with Lee, friends and relatives. Returned to the ship on Sunday, and we cast off the lines early Monday morning to head for Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. This is what the Dutch call a delivery trip, so we will not stop anywhere along the way. I will be attempting to upload pictures and update my blog along the way as internet connectivity presents.
