Don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post photos from my recent trip up to the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, but here they is anyway.

The festival was great, got to visit with lots of friends, old and new. The “sail by” on Sunday was perfect, light winds blowing off the shore, sunshine and the excellent company of two friends from the marina in Olympia, Noreen and Riley.

I might talk myself into attending next year. 🙂

But some nice sunshine every now and then.

Played leap frog with this cool tugboat.

The rest of the journey to Port Townsend was rainy, cold and generally not very photo-worthy. This is early morning at anchor off PT on Thursday, when the weather began to improve quite a bit.

SKYE was positioned a bit better than last time, with access from the dock, over the stern.

Four bowsprits attached to four very cool boats kept me from sneaking out for a sail. 🙂

Quite a variety of boats, big and small!

Even some furry friends were interested in all the neat boats.

I’ll try to add some photos of the sail-by if I can track them down.
