Not snappy

Day 2 of the Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race. The race starts at “low noon” and winds up up up hill and then some downhill to the fairgrounds: and there is the Mud Bog. Each sculpture has to pick one of three courses. They are deep and muddy and rutted. The sculptures can be moved sideways but not forward or back. There is a time limit. It looks like very hard work!

There is a lot of standing around. In costume. Observing and commenting. Kinetic Kop presence.

I love this sculpture. Headed for the mud.

Others waiting.

He is fairly snappy.


He makes it and the buns are next!

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: snappy.

      I think that is the hardest part of the race! But hills and paddling in 57 degree water! It all looks exhausting, in costume, with an audience and announcer! Not to mention you have to build your racer and they can take all sorts of forms. Hooray for the racers and all of the many volunteers!

        Certainly entertaining from the virtual sidelines. Not sure I’d ever be quite that crazy, lol.

          I think up fabulous costumes but get a little lazy about making them. The all feather one was amazing, though I worried about the sourcing a bit.
