Beautiful Tall Ship sailed by my window this morning at work in Salem, Massachusetts USA. The ship is called “Peacemaker” and it was a spectacular sight!!!!

From Wikipedia:
The Peacemaker, originally named Avany, was built on a riverbank in southern Brazil using traditional methods and tropical hardwoods, and was launched in 1989. The original owner and his family motored in the southern Atlantic Ocean before bringing the ship up through the Caribbean to Savannah, Georgia, where they intended to rig it as a three-masted staysail Marconi rigged motor sailer. The work was never done, however, and in the summer of 2000, it was purchased by the Twelve Tribes, a religious group with 50 or so communities in North and South America, Europe, and Australia.2 They spent the next seven years replacing all of the ship’s mechanical and electrical systems and rigging it as a barquentine. The refit vessel set sail for the first time in the spring of 2007, under the name Peacemaker.3

    Monica, I was out of work for a year, but I finally found one, it is not my “dream job of the century” just happy to have one for now.
    I am out in central Mass, but hopefully we’ll make our home on the “north shore” someday. take care, Linda
