It’s hard to imagine that after such an exciting week in the Baltimore Harbor the Star Spangled Spectacular, that the ships are now gone. Heading out today, for parts north and south these maritime visitors graced us with their majesty during their stay.
The Witchcraftis one of these wonderful vessels. Built in 1902 in Massachusetts, she has been a ‘true witch of the seas’ mesmerizing and enchanting both owners and visitors alike. She is a true work of art, and has been in continual restoration since the mid-1970’s by her current owners.
I felt as if I was under a spell gazing on “The Witch” as each part of her spoke to me, filled with spirit and history.
There are many more captures I’ve yet to share with you of this wonderful maritime event. You’ll see them sprinkled in the future to bring us back to glorious summer days. Perhaps one day we’ll get out to sail the high seas together.
Those arete beauties of the seven seas! Thanks fior sharing!
Oh Pit, you would have loved to have been there. And the military vessels were truly impressive.
I love that name! I’ve always been fascinated with witches. Hearing that a boat is named Witchcraft conjures up such wonderful imagery for me.
Is that right? Have you ever been to Salem? I’m guessing you probably have. I’m also addicted to the new series Witches of East end. Have you watched that?
Gorgeous pictures! If you’re still in Baltimore, Check out Woodberry kitchen for lunch or dinner. Or Shirley’s for brunch! Or…..so many places!
Shirley’s is awesome as there is one in Annapolis also. Haven’t heard of Woodberry, so will definitely check that out next time I’m in the city. Thanks for the suggestion Robin.
a crafty vessel .. happy sailing.
Isn’t she charming? Can you imagine being on the big seas though? I’d be so sick!
I was in that huge lake in Chicago, can’t remember the name, for 3 days and two nights. In one day, it felt like I was in the big sea! Unbelievably stormy, tidal wavey lake. Never again. Thank you.
LOL ! that is too funny. All that rocking gets me too.

You have captured the spirit of sailing.
That is exactly what Witchcraft is – simple and small. You are also so wonderful intuitive and thank you so much for sharing.
So glad we are connected! 🙂
Me too. You are such an inspiration, not only to me but to many others out there in the world.
It’s a sin for some one to have let such a fine boat get in as bad of shape as it was in back in the 1970’s! I’m glad that some one rescued her and restored her to her present glory!
It is good fortune that has befallen her and will be preserved and remembered for a long time to come. A true labor of love.
Lovely images. No doubt you’ve been casting magical spells with your camera again!
LOL ! You are so sweet – I need to get out and photograph more. I’ve been spending a lot of time with the horses and getting away from something else I love to do. The next month has a few adventures though. 🙂
They were a beautiful sight. I was grateful to see them as they prepared to weigh anchor.
So excited that you’re local and were able to enjoy them. Did you go when they set sail out of town?
