Welcome to another Friday leading to a great weekend.

In this post we have an artistic look at the flagship of the Living Classrooms Foundation, the schooner Lady Maryland. Sitting at the dock, this replica of a Chesapeake Bay schooner, a ship that sailed the waters of the Chesapeake Bay in the 1800′s, is used as a floating classroom to provide hands-on education for students of all ages. Shown here is the bow section, but the entire ship is 104 feet in length and was crafted from trees in Maryland.

The image below was taken in Fall of 2011, just before this beauty headed to drydock for some refurbishment work in Fells Point. I understand that the work has now been completed and she is once again afloat so I’ll be heading down to look her up and gather some new images to share with you.

A ship so rich in history brings to mind thoughts of how things must have been many years ago when the original schooner was at sea.

Here is a black and white version of the image above.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a fantastic weekend!
