Modern world met old world in San Francisco today as a parade of tall ships passed under the Bay Bridge.
The ships were here to take part in the Festival Of Sail from July 23 through July 28.
The view of these "pirate" ships was a welcome distraction from my fourth floor cubical.
Later in the afternoon when the ships had come back to dock, I looked out the window and realized there were people hanging from the cross bars of the masts rolling up the sails. This can be seen in the picture below. Pretty amazing.
