It was a beautiful day out today, so I went to Vantage Point in town. It's on the St. Clair River, just before the mouth of Lake Huron. Boat Nerd World Headquarters are located there. I was hoping to catch site of the tall ships on their way up the waterways to Bay City. My hour long wait turned into the whole day waiting. So I took advantage of the situation to practice with my zoom lens. First I saw these geese, just lazing along the riverfront.

Across the river in Canada, this plane was taking off. I could barely see what I was taking a picture of it was so sunny, and everything reflected off the water.
So it was a treat when I downloaded the pictures and found they turned out so well, from such a distance!

Then I took pictures of the two church towers that are inland in Canada. I never noticed the different crosses, as they're so far away!
I caught this picture of a seagull on top on one of the lights. And then, what I'd been waiting for! A tall ship from Germany! Wait a minute...the sails weren't up, and it looked no different than any other big sail boat as far as I'm concerned, oh well, I can chalk that up to what my Dad would say, "Nah I don't want to go, I saw one of those once." Nice picture though,
