Fiddlehead Fern Posted June 13, 2009 Share Posted June 13, 2009 Hello all, this summer I'm going to be spending a month on a square rigged sailing ship on the great lakes. Quite looking forward to it too, as you might guess. Well, I'm planning on taking the 'tina, since a month without making music (besides singing) is just too frightening to contemplate, and it's small and hopefully won't be affected as much as my violin would be. Though if I can pack my things very carefully my second fiddle may well make the trip too. That's to be decided yet. Anyone have any advice on what I should do (besides "don't take it swimming") whilst sailing along with the concertina? Dry and secure place, check, instruments allowed, check, and yes, I'm careful (to the point of being annoying to some non-instrumental friends) about making sure the heat, humidity et all is reasonably level and safe as possible in the circumstances before subjecting my "little pals" to it. It's freshwater sailing, I'll be in the great lakes and St. Lawrence seaway up to Montreal. Then comes my second question....what should I do and see (if I'm able) in Montreal? Music to hear? Landmarks to take cheesy tourist pictures in front of? I don't know how much time I'll have ashore, nor how far I'll be able to go (walking...) nor even exactly where I'll be. But, if anyone has recommendations I'll keep them in mind. I do know that the ship I'm going to be on was invited up as part of a festival, but I haven't been told what that festival is and I'm not entirely sure what the dates are, I haven't looked at the schedule for a bit. So that's all. Ways to keep the 'tina from getting too seasick, and what to see in Montreal. Fair sailing! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
