Tall ships, tall trees grace northern California’s coast

Tall ships make a stop in the Eureka harbor.

A young sailor tells Sue about his ship.

 

Our visit to Eureka, California, coincided with the arrival of tall ships Lady Washington, above left, and the Hawaiian Chieftan.

The Lady Washington, as HMS Interceptor, was featured in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

The ships offer educational tours and voyages as they travel up and down the Pacific Coast.

The company offers two-week internships aboard the ships. We were tempted for a moment or two.

These three coastal redwoods may appear to be one tree in a few hundred years. The world's tallest tree resides nearby.
