Schooner Ardelle Arrives In Washington!!! Photos from Janice Rathjen

Hi Joey,
I thought I’d pass along a few pictures my wife (Janice Rathjen) took this afternoon of the schooner Ardelle arriving in Washington DC. We were out for an afternoon sail, and met up with the Ardelle as it was coming up the Potomac River. The picture below shows her approaching the Woodrow Wilson Bridge (aka the Capital Beltway) from the south, with the Washington Monument visible under the bridge.

Cheers, from a former Gloucester resident.
