Sky Watch


Last weekend was the 25th annual West Coast Sea Kayak Symposium held on the beach at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend.
This first picture was taken Sunday morning at Point Wilson with the fog just beginning to lift. Later sun breaks were a welcome sight for hundreds of those enjoying the three day event.

Sea Kayak? Not me. I would guess they stay in the protected harbor?

I love the first one with the lighthouse standing out in the background. I didnt know that many people kayaked.

Boy, all those kayaks are so colourful! I guess it helped that day since the sky was sort of grey.

Both shots hold great interest, the first for atmosphere, the second for it's colourfulness.

Fantastic shots, Raf! I would have loved to see that event. Years ago, we enjoyed a guided kayak adventure in the San Juans (Puget Sound ~ not open sea). Loved every gorgeous minute of it, but, BOY HOWDY were my arms sore the neXt day!

My last kayayking adventure ended up with me swimming in a very dirty lake. These colours are so well contrasted. Like delving into a pick and mix of candy. Beautifl choice for skywatch.
