I am always seduced by the romance of tall ships, so today I stole away and joined the Lynx, a square-topsail schooner from Nantucket, MA in the Parade of Sail. The weather was perfect, just enough cloud cover to mitigate a really punishing day under a hot Carolina sun, and a sweet onshore breeze.  The ships are docked in North Charleston and the festival runs through the weekend, so go take a look and support this wonderful event.
