Day 3 in the North End

This is Friday, August 7.

It was 53 degrees in the early morning, so I did not go out to sketch.  I had not really come prepared for such cool weather!  I didn’t even bring socks and wore only open sandals.

Breakfast was served at 0900.  Once again, the group of guests all talked for 2 hours.  We really enjoyed the company and conversation.  So I didn’t have time to sketch in town before meeting the Whidbey Island sketchers at the La Conner Pub.  We sat on the patio and it was a fun lunch together.

Then we finally got down to sketching.  Many of the group came on Paula’s boat.  I joined them in using it as a sketching platform.  It gave a good view of the pavilions designed to resemble traditional cedar hats of the Swinomish.  They were across the water on the Swinomish Community Center and Reservation.

I set off for Woodinville about 1530.  I had no idea there would be so many events and festivals going on.  I completely missed the turn to Red Hook brewery on my first pass through town.  It took about a half hour to get back due to all the festival traffic!  Red Hook itself must have had 2 or 3 different events going on.  What a zoo.  But I was directed to a parking spot and went into the pub to find the astronaut.  It was in a very unfortunate location…. it was so dark I could hardly see it.

I headed for home after that, arriving about 1900.   A few photos from the day are here.

Only 2 more Astronauts and this project is done!
