Repath Tall Ships Toronto

I got a quick chance to visit the Toronto waterfront yesterday and got a glimpse into our historic past. One can only image the scene when sailing ships like these were the norm in the Toronto Harbours. These floating beauties are in town for the Redpath Tall Ships Tour.  See for more on the festival.

I arrived mid-morning and didn't have the best light available but I hope you enjoy a few photos from my visit  and get down and visit the waterfront yourself if you are in or near Toronto this weekend. There is a lot going on, despite the construction in the area, and it is always a great area to visit.

Colourful flags decorate one of the masts on this ship. The intricate rigging is amazing and it must take a great deal of knowledge to get everything up and running.
Dinghies all arranged on a row  on one of the waterfront docks.
