OpSail is underway in New York for the next week. I love boats and planes so I had to check it out.
I persuaded Mr. Weebles to play hooky with me yesterday morning so we could watch the Parade of Sail, which featured sailing ships and military ships from around the world. There was also a military flyover by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, a C-130 cargo plane, a pair of Osprey helicopters, an AWACS plane, and a few others I can’t recall at the moment. It was pretty cool. I was hoping there would be more planes and more ships but I’ll take what I can get.
I took a lot of photos—we were on a boat on the Hudson so we had a great view of everything. I thought I would share some of the highlights with you. Some of the images aren’t as clear as I would have liked, but between the bizarre weather and my digital camera, there was only so much that could be done. Each image has hovertext info, and you can click on each thumbnail to see a full-size photo. Enjoy!
