Wooden Boat Festival

Ah, the time has come for lovers of wooden boats to celebrate in Port Townsend. Tomorrow is the opening of the 35th Annual Wooden Boat Festival which runs through the weekend. Hundreds of wooden vessels of all sizes (tall ships and small skiffs), shapes (beamy cruisers and sleek racers) and types (schooners, motor launches, paddle boats) will gather around Port Townsend Bay from places far and near. Check out the schedule and activities here.

What a fantastic photo! So evocative of adventure on the high seas, exploring distant shores, and of returning safely to one's home harbor as the sun sets. Your post has my husband green with envy - he is in love with sailboats and would love the wooden boat festival!
