A Purchase at the Seattle Boat Show -- Wednesday, February 1, 2017

This morning we have a chilly but pleasant walk a for a mile or so south from the Selene docks on Lake Union to the Boats Afloat part of the Seattle Boat Show, where boats for sale are moored in South Lake Union.  We go aboard a few, visiting with the sales people, and mentally selecting the one we would buy -- if we were to get another boat!  Looking for the right boat at the right price.

Lunch is from a hot dog stand on the dock -- healthful?  But the Polish sausage is oh, so delicious!  Well, the water is pure.

After lunch Herb suggests we go back to the inside show at Century Link one more time and see what Fisheries has for sale.  It would be quite a hike, but there is complimentary bus service between the two venues, so we get to sit for a time as we ride.

Once at the show, we go upstairs to the small booths, and find Bruce and Vicki shopping.  Vicki literally takes me by the hand to show me her recent purchase -- a waterproof life jacket for her phone.  I had seen the booth earlier, but paid no attention after I saw the words, "life jacket," because I am happy with my current life jacket.

But wait!  This is for my phone!  It is billed as enabling one to use the phone in the water, but for Vicki and me, it is a safety feature to keep the phone in tow while handling lines as we dock our boats.  It has a strap for wearing over the shoulder or around the waist.  If it ever did happen to fall overboard, it will float until fished out with the dip net or boat hook.

You can use the phone while it is in the case, and there is even room for a key fob, credit card and watch.

Find Willie's new Ugo phone purse.
