I spend most of the day photographing the boats as they arrive, trying to get both the names of the boats and a shot of the owners for our viewing pleasure and memories.
I am amused and pleased with the various names the folks have chosen for their boats.
Also during the entire day attendees are invited to visit others' boats to see how they have them outfitted, have made additions to storage areas, and have made other enhancements.
As the day begins to cool and I retrieve my jacket from the hotel room, I leave my camera with someone and am surprised to be photographed.
Then delighted to see that he catches Andrew of Ranger Tug Factory in Kent, who is invaluable to Tug owners with his knowledge and customer service.
Happy Hour begins with beer on tap, courtesy of Elliott Bay Brewing Co.
Quickly the hors d'oeuvres are appreciated, as evidenced by the beginning-to-be-empty dishes.
I do recall that Fernie of Blessings begins to foretell the future.........he doesn't read tea leaves............he reads faces -- Herb's face in particular. Herb photographs his sharing some new knowledge with me.
It is a fun meeting and we look forward to Saturday, which will be jam packed with activities. After dinner, we all retire for the evening, and rest fast.
