ABC Wednesday - Y is for yards...




...as in boatyards. There is no shortage of boats in Port Townsend and they come in many shapes, forms, types and sizes. They also come from places far and wide for hauling out and having repairs done that would be more expensive, for example, in Alaska's far reaches and harsher climate. For me, the boatyard is a great place to find photo ops, catch up on marine-related news and perhaps swap a few sea stories.
Stop by Mrs. Nesbitt's Place for a list of all participants in ABC Wednesday or to learn how easy it is to take part.

Every time I go to Port Townsend I have to stop at the boatyards. There are so many great boats (yachts) in various degrees of repair. Talking to all of the boaters is lots of fun. After looking at your pictures I want to come back soon. I chose Y is for yarn, I invite you to come see. - Margy

You might want to check out the new public art in the lobby of the Commons at Fort Worden. Talk about Sky Watch! I can envision a photo of that piece in your blog, but of course that's up to you.
