The last day was a long one, but probably something that most of us won't forget for a long time. We originally were only going to stay until Wednesday, but then saw in the paper that some sailing ships were going to be coming into port in Canal Park on Thursday, so we extended our stay to see the ships on the way home. Below is one of the ships we saw from the rose garden in Duluth. Absolutely beautiful!
Here is that same ship going through the bridge in Canal Park.
There were four ships total that came from the East Coast and they were amazing.
The biggest and final ship even shot off it's cannons when it came through the bridge and my grandma ducked like someone was shooting at her.
The ships were fun, but made for a long day of standing in the sun and getting a super sunburn to my nose. After the final ship came through the port, we all went out separate ways back home. I had to work at midnight when we returned, so like I said, it made for a long day. All in all though, we agreed that it was one of the best times we had all had in a long time.
Thanks again everyone for the great time and here's hoping that we can do something similar again next year!
