P is for passion -

the passion for boating in Port Townsend, that is. Sails, motors, paddles, oars or any means of getting out on the surrounding waters of this seaport town will do. The big event for this passion culminates every summer with the annual Wooden Boat Festival in September. It may be the largest show of wooden vessels of all sizes, shapes and types in the country. Not to be missed - be ye sailor or landlubber, it's three days and nights of something for everyone. Check it out here.

View all the posts using the letter P today at Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday.

Passion at the Port! Even a landlubber like me (sailing makes me queezy - I've tried it) loves the beauty of these boats. Marvy photo with the tall trees as a backdrop.

I wish we had this here. We used to build wooden tall ships, long time ago. The image is so silky and seemless. Flawless.

Just my passion. A wooden boat spreading its sails. Lovely!

Lovely! Sails are so photogenic - well, so is anything to do with boats. I wish I could visit in September, but I'll just have to visit your blog instead.

On behalf of the Team, as well as on my own account, thank you for your continued participation.
