Coast Guard Barque Eagle

My daughter and I went down to the Charlestown Navy Yard to see a few of the tall ships in town for Sail Boston. Late in the day we toured the U.S. Coast Guard Eagle.

The ship is in active service, being used for a six week training cruise for Academy cadets after their freshman year.

One of the cadets on board mentioned that they had already had over 20,000 visitors that day alone.
