There is something quite majestic about the famous tall ships. The Lady Washington has been featured in movies and series including “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” ”Star Trek: Generations” and ABC’s “Once Upon A Time.”

And if you were as busy as I was this summer and missed their visit to Oregon, now’s your chance to see them again. There will be free deck tours, sailing trips, and educational programs available for guests, courtesy of the Aberdeen-based nonprofit Grays Harbor Historical Seaport.
