The Ragtag Daily Prompt today is patience. We still have some fog. We hope for clear sailing. We hope the fog bank will shrink. Right now we can see what is under it and avoid it. Patience, patience. Mask and immunize, please, please, push back the fog.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: cast off.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: bail.
The little red pram is older than I am and leaks. Last summer we got it out and my daughter sailed and bailed with ease. She is on the racing team at Western Washington in Bellingham, racing FJs.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: iridescence.
For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors: The lovely carved door for the Wooden Boat Foundation in the early morning, lit by the sun.
The Wooden Boat Foundation is now part of the Northwest Maritime Center, but it was started in 1978 along with the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. You can read the history here. I have been in town for 18 years and my father and my children and I did the family boat building one year. We built a “nuf” light plywood canoe in three days.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: orchestrate.
Photographs of my father’s boat, Sun Tui, returning to the water after a lot of repair work. I was looking for photos of my children playing violin or viola, but came across these. We had a team to repair the boat and a team to put her back in the water and raise the mast again. All the players play their parts and play together.
And out and about:
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: holiday.
I am not sure about the trim on these sails…. bit worrisome. Really windy! What do you think?
For Friday’s Ragtag Daily Prompt: slide.
Do they ever start sliding down and dislodge each other?
From Sunday. We are getting fog in the morning and yesterday it lasted past noon. But when it burns off, we are still getting gorgeous fall days.
