Ghostly Visitors from Another Time

I received a phone call from my father at 7:30 am, and thought it was going to be some kind of bad news. In fact, it was very good news. He'd spied these tall ships out on Lake Michigan on his commute, and was kindly telling me to get my fanny out there if I wanted to see the spectacle.

According to posts of other photos from pals on Facebook, yesterday was their main stopover day in Kenosha on the way down to Chicago. For some lovely, sunny, close-ups of these beauties, check out The Best Western Harborside Inn's photo album on Facebook.

And here's a link to the Kenosha Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau Facebook photo album.

It would have been wonderful to see them under full sail, but as you can tell from the fog, there wasn't much more than an occasional whisper of wind.

The fog created just the right mood of haunting beauty from another age.

Thanks for stopping by!
