Today was another nice day at Fort Nisqually. I did some sewing and then dressed for interpretation.
Mike and Chris were working on the logs for the new chicken coop. This is going to be a fort of a coop. Or the “Chicken Mahal”. Or the “Palais des Poulets”. I sat on the porch of the Factor’s house to sketch Mike at work.
This sketch has a lot of problem, composition being one. They’ll be working on this building all summer so I’ll have plenty of chances to do another.
It was warm in the sun, so I sought the shade of the canvas pavilion. This view is the flag pole in the middle of the parade ground. We fly the flag of the Hudson’s Bay Company. The building is the men’s dwelling house (which is now the entrance building and the Fort’s gift shop).
This one I like.
