The Afternoon Sail at 2:00 p.m. is generally a livelier, more exhilarating sail among the islands of Frenchman Bay, because of the stronger afternoon sea breezes. Relax, have a picnic or help us hoist the sails!

For a little history of THE SCHOONER MARGARET TODD just click.

The women raising the sails. That is my wife Linda (A VERY HOT WOMAN) on the left. She actually sprained her back doing this chore.

“The Margaret Todd carries nine sails on her four masts. The large sails are called, from front to back, the foresail, mainsail, mizzensail, and spankersail. (These sails are named after the mast which carries it). The five smaller sails are the jib topsail, inner and outer jibs, staysail and the spanker topsail.”

THAT’S MY WORLD TUESDAY A TRIP TO GERMAN VILLAGE COLUMBUS,OHIO

GM1

German Village consists of 233 acres and is a preeminent historic district. Schiller Park was originally known as Stewart’s Grove and today is the home of Oktoberfest, family reunions, and Sanger fests.

GM2

You will have to go to Schiller Park in person to see the statue of The umbrella girl.

100_3580 I stopped by the Meeting Haus and had a chat with Norm Burns a retired dentist and Ohio State University alumni. Norm suggested I watch the following video narrated by Andrea Cambern. Norm enrolled at OSU the same year Woody Hayes became football coach at OSU.

From there I was off to the book loft and a unique bookstore it is.

GM4

One could easily spend many hours just at the bookstore but as usual I’m getting hungry so a short trip thru the neighborhood and

GM3 Love the village architecture  wrought iron fences and extensive use of brick are hallmarks of the area. It’s time to eat..

100_3514

A stop at Max and Erma’s  739 S. Third St. or if you are not all that hungry and just need some caffeine.

100_3521  Then I discovered the old school house that is now home for “craft’s for sale” made by senior citizens.

100_3553 100_3556

100_3557 100_3534

That’s Velma sitting at the desk. She let me know there were crafts upstairs,downstairs,on the stairs,in the principals office and in the coat room. ( I’m here to tell you the prices are “right”)

My favorite: 100_3530

This very unique place is run under the auspices of The Columbus Dept. of Recreation. ( Let’s give them a big thanks)

I’ll bet you can’t tell what I went home with? Just a little present for my wife Linda.

100_3537  Well German Village is a great place to visit and I certainly didn’t have enough time to spend exploring everything. So I will be going back. One place Norm suggested checking out both inside and out is:

100_3519  Norm said they have some magnificent frescos inside.

100_3518 Thanks for stopping by and check out more great places in this world of ours by going to: That's My World Tuesday
