Yesterday we saw a sea lion sunbathing off the Sacramento River. He’d climbed onto the lower dock in Old Sacramento and fellow tourists stopped by to take a look, while Channel 13 news caught the fun on film.
After the sea lion encounter we walked over to the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain to see if they were giving any tours. She’s a beautiful vessel and according to Atlakeunionpark.org: …a replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the nineteenth century. Unfortunately there was no one aboard, but I’ve found her future tour schedules; and looks like the she’ll be in town through mid-December. I better plan a trip soon!
Apparently the Hawaiian Chieftain tours up and down the West coast often accompanying Lady Washington, the official boat of Washington State. It’s amazing what a little research can tell you.
Along with regular tours of the ship, adult groups can pay to learn how to sail the Hawaiian Chieftain right now in Sacramento. School, church, service and senior groups are also welcome to the Hawaiian Chieftain’s Voyages of Discovery educational programs. Pretty neat huh? I really hope to take a tour soon!
It’s amazing to me how much there is to do in our little Sacramento. It’s no small town but it’s certainly no San Francisco either. Looking back on this summer though, I seriously have a list of posts to catch up on before I’m all up to date on this summer’s adventures. Let’s just say you’re in for a real treat!
