I love ships with sails...old ships with sails. On a trip to Boston several years ago, we visited the USS Constitution and I was in heaven. To see her looking so good, even though she's old (215 years old to be exact) and to know that she's still technically a commissioned ship in the US Navy.
Yesterday she sailed again (under her own power), and fired her guns to commemorate the 200th anniversary of her victory over HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812.
