Old Ironsides

Old Ironsides, originally uploaded by southiejason.

I took this photo a few years ago when the USS Constitution made a pilgrimage to Castle Island during an Independence Day celebration, complete with a battle ceremony of her firing her cannons, and five colonial soldiers firing their muskets in response (well, into the air).

On Tuesday, I rode my bike out to Charlestown and saw the Constitution at port, resting up for the weary sail out to Southie tomorrow morning.
