Saturday my friend Debbie and I went out for a fun day. We started out in Edinboro, Pa for the Highland Games and Scottish Festival. Maybe our timing was off but we didn't get to see much. Mostly we saw people standing around practicing their bagpipes.
From there we headed to the Bayfront in Erie, Pa to see the tall ships. We both chose to pass on the steep admission price to gain closer access to the ships. Instead we got some shots of them from a distance and enjoyed the exercise we got from all the walking.
We also got to see the worlds largest rubber duck.
Craig Samborski, a tall ships festival organizer in Duluth, Minnesota,
created the World's Largest Rubber Duck in 2014 after one of his
business associates dared him to come up with some kind of inventive
attraction to showcase at tall ship and maritime festivals. (source: http://www.goerie.com/entertainment/20160908/5-things-about-rubber-duck-at-tall-ships-erie )

After this we headed out for lunch at Eat n Park. When I got home I took care of a few things, then dinner time and by the time I could get around to sitting in front of the computer the weather was turning. We were expecting severe thunderstorms. While it didn't turn out as bad as we thought, it did take out the internet and tv for a bit. I gave up on trying to get a post done.
