Today is the Summer Solstice — the longest day of the year in our hemisphere — and this is the way we wanted to celebrate it. Date Night all day long.
I took a bazillion clicks. You know me, right? But this is Close Shot Friday, so you get this.
It looks serious. It means business.
Found on board the U.S. Brig Niagara, a two-masted, square-rigged sailing vessel. This is the third reconstruction of the original vessel. According to the brochure, it was launched in Erie on September 19, 1988. It sails the Great Lakes “preserving and interpreting the story of the Battle of Lake Erie”. More pics of the vessel in a later post.
