Tall ship Lady Washington visits Morro Bay

The tall ship Lady Washington is making a stop on the Central Coast as part of a non-profit education program. The ship is in Morro Bay until Sunday. It's a replica of the original Lady Washington, which was the first American flagged vessel to round Cape Horn. The ship also set up the fur trade in Asia. "The most impressive part, I find, for students coming on board is realizing it's not just a set, it's not just a playground, it's not just a movie. This ship actually sails as it was 200 years ago," said James McClurg, the Captain of the ship. McClurg says they teach kids about the ship's history and what sort of jobs were available on the ship. If you're interested in visiting the ship, tours go from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Sunday. To get on board, just make a donation. After it leaves Morro Bay, it's heading down to Oxnard and Long Beach, but it will be back in Morro Bay in February.
