I first saw the tall ships a few years ago, and I was happy that the Tall Ships Festival came to Cleveland over the weekend. I wouldn't call myself a history buff, but seeing these ships sparks one's imagination to the past and how these sailors lived back then.
Included in the photos below are a couple of the ships that took sail during the festival, and that looked really cool. The rain held off, and it turned out to be a great day in Cleveland!
