2019 is the second year they have included a giant inflated duck as part of the Festival of Sail.  Not sure why we need a giant duck, it’s here anyway.

Non-Sailing Vessels

Although it’s named the Festival of Sail, there are also a few vessels that do not sport sails.

Edward H. (formerly the Fort Point) – traveled to Duluth from Belfast, Maine, via the St. Lawrence Seaway.

USCGC Sundew (WLB-404) is a 180-foot sea going buoy tender. A Iris, or C-class tender, it was built by Marine Iron and Shipbuilding Corporation in Duluth, Minnesota, now retired and privately owned.

Simplicity

Nature casually creates lovely and simple patterns, it’s up to us to slow down and see what is being created.
