Ahoy, mates! This is the Good Ship R Tucker Thompson. She’s a tall ship, and 85 feet long. Those of you in the Pacific NW may have seen her at the Tall Ships Festival last summer, when she sailed all the way from NZ to Tacoma for the celebration. We had a lovely sail, complete with “cream tea” which is tea and scones that are smothered in slightly sweetened whipped cream, and a fabulous lunch with BBQ chicken and salad with fresh feta cheese. The food is wonderful in NZ!
