I was in Turku this morning and was fortunate enough to snap a few pictures of vessels participating in Tall Ships Races Baltic 2009, including one of the flag raising ceremony.
Thursday morning was a wonderful opportunity to stroll along the waterfront and view the tall ships that had arrived. A few of them had not arrived, but you couldn’t tell from all the ships on display.
There was one gentleman selling warm, smoked salmon, very fresh and flavorful. Saturday promises to be an awesome experience.
Here are two of the photographs I took (I have one of the Flying Dutchman’s pirate flag which I hope to post later):
