With the Chilean Navy’s barquentine Esmeralda at Pier 9, of course I had to go to the harbor and get photos.
I arrived early enough to catch the hoisting of the colors (U.S. and Chile) and ensign.

There was a sign by the gangway saying that the ship would be open to the public starting later on that morning. Unfortunately, I had to go to work. So, I made plans to return in the afternoon.
