Just wanted to share this with you if you like nautical stuff. We are having a huge parade of sail and naval ships going on in Norfolk this week. My museum is right on the water in Portsmouth and have pretty good access to seeing the festival. Think of it as the Diamond Jubilee except on the James River, not the Thames and fewer tiaras and a lot more cannon. It is being held in conjucntion with the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 (Settled in nearby Yorktown).
Here is a live link to the parade
It is working now (6/6/2012) and I am heading over to take a few pictures. There are mostly Naval vessels but the tall ships are on their way. I hope to get a picture log going here over the next few days. We have a lot of food and drink opps during the celebration as well as a lot of musical acts.
Think the Blue Angels will be flying this weekend too. They are a great act of precision.
Keep you in the loop.
