Maritime

Washington is being hit by an awful lot of hot weather! On Sunday we did some boating out on The Sound. Gig Harbor was having a Maritime Festival and a ceremonial Blessing of the Fleet. Mystic Lady was my favorite fishing vessel name.

After braving the bigger waves under the bridge, we anchored in Gig Harbor to do some people/boat watching. We passed cold beers to canoers (because boating people are nice people!), and chatted with a few harbor seals.

I used an adapted Holga lens for the day, toy camera photos.



If you ever manage to find you way out on the water near Pt. Defiance, a passage called The Narrows, check out all the awesome homes along Salmon Beach. A unique bohemian community of houses and cottages built at the bottom of a cliff over the water! In high school I knew a few families who lived down here. What if this was your view everyday?! Vehicles park at the top of the cliff, and inhabitants hand carry every item down to the homes... commitment! I can see why you might keep a couch for an awfully long time down there.
