Sailing into the Fog   by Monica M. Scanlan

Currently unavailable for purchase

I was sitting in my office today (7/12/10) and they were moving the “Friendship” Tall Ship out of Pickering Warf. As it sailed away, the fog rolled in and I just thought that the way it looked in the fog was awesome! So, needless to say, I pulled out the spare camera, Canon Powershot and took a few pictures of the process and the fog! Taken in Salem (Salem Harbor), Massachusetts USA.

Friendship, a reconstruction of a 171-foot three-masted Salem East Indiaman built in 1797, arrived on September 1, 1998 at the National Park Service’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site in Salem, after two years of construction at Scarano Boat Building in Albany, NY. She is the largest wooden, Coast Guard certified, sailing vessel to be built in New England in more than a century.
