WILMINGTON, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Delaware's long list of official state things continues to grow.
    
Delaware already has, among other things, a state dog, a state bird, a state fossil, a state soil, a state macroinvertebrate, and a state dessert.
    
Now, with legislation being signed Friday by Gov. Jack Markell, it is getting an official Tall Ship.
    
That would be the Kalmar Nyckel, a replica of a vessel that sailed from Sweden in 1638, carrying the first permanent European settlers in the Delaware Valley to what is now Wilmington.

Last month, people on Delmarva had the chance to see the Kalmar Nyckel when it was docked at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal. 
    
If you're wondering about those others, they're the golden retriever, the blue hen chicken, the belemnite, Greenwich loam, the stonefly, and peach pie.
