The Brig Niagara

Last weekend we had a rare opportunity--the chance to climb aboard the Brig Niagara, the replica of one of Oliver Hazard Perry's ships from the War of 1812, the Battle of Lake Erie. Here are some of the shots I got, along with a resolve to watch for the announcement of public trips and sign up for the next one that is available!

The Niagara at its berth behind our public library, right on the bay.

The masts are unbelievably tall.

Neatness seems to be a virtue here.

One of the summer crew, some of whom were living on board yet.

A bell with surely an interesting story.

As I said above, neatness!
