More Duck!

I didn’t get enough on Friday of the World’s Largest Rubber Duck at the Festival of Sail in Tacoma. So I went back early today, arriving at gate-open time of 0900, hoping to beat the Father’s Day rush.  This time I went to the actually dock side.  Didn’t pay to get a really close view as the view from the upper patio was just fine.

But it was misting rain. I found a place to shelter under the gate house roof overhang so as to sketch a view of the duck with the Tacoma Dome in the background.

Once the rain started to come in under the overhand, I decamped to the shelter of a nearby restaurant, thus getting a view of the duck butt.  Not the classic view that always amuses me:











But sill, a bit amusing
