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.
I have been posting lots of photographs of the color of water at Lake Matinenda, but I have water at home too. This is an early morning on my way to work. The boats were gathering for the Wooden Boat Festival and the sun was just above the horizon.
I took this during the Wooden Boat Festival this year. I am in the Sunrise Rotary. We sell hotdogs, beef and veggie and virtual (for your avatar) to raise money for all sorts of projects: incoming and outgoing exchange students, a shelter box or two to go to disasters, grant money for our local domestic violence and trauma shelter, dictionaries for every 3rd grader in the county, money to a project in Rwanda to support grandmothers taking in orphaned children that they are not even related to….
Many thanks to everyone who helps. Some people don’t eat hotdogs, beef or veggie, but donate anyhow. Since it’s Wooden Boat, I dress as a very unrealistic pirate. I just like the hat and lace!
