By request, Mike and I brought Sophia and her friends to Canal Park on Saturday evening to celebrate her (belated) birthday. She and her friends wanted to go out to dinner and walk around Canal Park and the Lakewalk. It was a nice evening and there were many tourists in the shops, restaurants and wandering around by the lake. We decided to also do the tourist thing while waiting for Sophia and her friends. As we walked around by the lake we saw the stream of tourists headed for the canal in anticipation of a large ship making its way into port. Although we have seen more ships than we can count over the years, we paused and decided to watch the ship too. As we watched it approach, we realized it is still fun to see after all these years. I’m still amazed that they can navigate through the narrow canal and under the Aerial Lift Bridge. It really never gets old.
