Wooden Boat Festival 2008

Great weather and hundreds of wooden boats registered for the event are helping Port Townsend enjoy its 32nd annual Wooden Boat Festival. Here the tall ship Alcyone is tendered into its dock space with Mt. Rainier seen on the horizon.

Point Hudson Marina has filled every available space for the entrants as well as the surrounding shore facilities for boats and vendors.

With the Olympic Mountains silhouetted by Friday's setting sun, the schooner Merrie Ellen is seen at dockside beneath a crescent moon.

More photos of the festival can be seen at my spillover site Raf's Lagniappe by clicking here.
