One Heron from Port Townsend

This piece of public art is a large, graceful weather vane that sits atop the roof of the Haines Place Park and Ride shelter on the edge of Kai Tai Lagoon Nature Park. Fashioned by renowned artist-blacksmith Russell Jaqua, in bronze, it's often seen glimmering in the sunlight. This shot taken from the north side, into the sun, shows a nice silhouette.

Haines Place Park and Ride, located on Haines Street one block north of Sims Way, is a hub for Port Townsend's excellent transit system provided by Jefferson Transit Authority. It's a great spot for visitors to park and easily tour by bus, all the downtown, uptown, Fort Worden and outlying areas.

At first glance I thought you'd caught a live heron in mid stretch. Nice photo today.

Awesome silouette! Maybe silouettes should be a Theme Day topic!
