Mexican Tall Ship

This afternoon I cycled down to Vancouver's Jericho Beach to take a close look at the beautiful Mexican tall ship, Cuauhtemoc. It was one of the two largest, the one from Russia being the other. There were so many people waiting in line to see the ship, which was nice to see because I think many of us Vancouverites have lost touch with our city's maritime roots.
I spoke with these 3 Mexican sailors en espanol, explaining to them that my ex-girlfriend's father was an admiral in the Mexican navy, before he retired. I think they understood what I was trying to say!!! If you'd like to see more photos of the ship, plus some others from around the waterfront then click here. A glorious day indeed!!!
