Tall Ships today?
We're in Pictou, the home of the Grohman Knife Company, the "Hector" and a stinky paper mill. The Hector brought 200 settlers from Scotland here in 1773 and is duplicated as a part of a museum depicting that event. We're tied up to a wharf right in town, but they are working on it to prepare for the tall ships that are supposed to arrive here today. We are heading towards where they are coming from, so we should pass them. Look for pictures. Wes wants to get some more lobster. When the Beckman crew was with us we bought two four pounders and cooked them up for a terrific dinner. Those are so big that ordinary lobster tools won't touch them and we had to resort to bid stuff from the tool bag. Delicious! Capt. Jeff
