Women’s March 2018

My guesstimate is around 2000 people in Port Townsend yesterday, huge range of age, race and gender. Stand up, speak up, march and vote!

And my guess is LOW! The PDN estimates 4000: http://www.peninsuladailynews.com/news/thousands-turn-out-for-peninsula-womens-march-in-port-townsend/.

And more women to run for office. Bravo!

varnish

Varnish makes me think of boats. Wooden boats. We have one group that does not use much varnish: our Kinetic Sculpture racers. Human powered, on land, on sea and through the mud bog. All sizes and shapes and themes. Wonderful!

We have helpers for the teams in the water, and here two kinetic sculptures are making their way to land. The water is a few degrees above 50 and they have to take turns exiting on the ramp. We have Kinetic Kops to protect the public and the racers.

For the Daily Prompt: varnish.

water door

This is for Thursday doors, though today is Friday. I took this from one of the docks down town, looking back. The buildings are from the late 1800s and many have elaborate decoration on the street side and then are brick on the water side. The tide is quite far out in this shot, with the pilings and beach and barnacles exposed. These are old doors for our area.
