Tall Ship Eagle

The Coast Guard Tall Ship Eagle docked in New Bedford on Friday.  Our rowing club will be hosting much of the crew at a cookout tomorrow. We figure around 75 of them will show.

I was surprised at how young the crew was.  I thought that it was academy grads or seniors who manned the ship but after seeing them today I'm now thinking sophomores.

The bridge spanning the Acushnet River is under repair for a few weeks.  Those of us on bikes have two full lanes to ourselves.  During heavy traffic when the cars are all backed up a few of us have been meandering across the bridge weaving around our two full lanes. 

 Everything to the right of the yellow cones is traffic free.
