This is another version of an older post of the Tall Ship, “Friendship” of Salem, Massachusetts USA. I thought it might look even better with some textures added. This is a Tall Ship that I can see from my office window every day. This particular day, on 7/12/10, they were moving the ship to Charlestown, Massachusetts. As it was leaving Salem, the fog rolled in and added to the whole image! So happy that I had my trusty Canon Powershot with me to capture the moment.

(From The City Guide, Salem:
The Original Friendship
Construction on the original Friendship was begun in 1796 by shipbuilder, Enos Briggs, known for the Frigate Essex, at his shipyard across from today’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site. The original three-masted, square-rigged, 342-ton vessel, Friendship, was registered in 1797 to merchants Jerathmiel Peirce and Aaron Waite.

She travelled the world trading for exotic spices, sugar and coffee, making 16 voyages to China, Java, Sumatra, Madras, London. Hamburg, Archangel, St.Petersburg, and other European ports. She was captured by the British in the War of 1812. The Peabody Essex Museum houses the ship logs for several of her voyages, as well as Aaron Waite’s shipping papers detailing information about the ship’s accounts.)

Dedicated to one of my favorite cousins, Robin Scanlan! :)
