And the sunshine continues! The Feet & Forks celebrated the sun with a walk in the harbor, marveling at the rare February sun.
Pink winter blooming camellias made it look like spring under the blue skies.
At the entrance to Gig Harbor, our little lighthouse glowed in the sun.
This couple enjoyed a lazy gondola ride, complete with a serenade from the oarsman. The gondola showed up a few years ago and was an immediate hit.
I always enjoy looking at the names that people choose for their boats. Cool Runnings has a line underneath saying "Peace be the Journey."
We asked the guy on Virus out of Olympia why that name. He said, "Because it's catching!"
We stopped in the office of Harbor WildWatch, a great organization that educates the public and school kids about the wonders of marine life in our harbor. I used to volunteer for them. Besides giving beach tours and talks, HWW has some neat hands-on activities and exhibits for rainy days in its downtown office.
We also stopped in a boating store where Joyce found this book, "Cleats & Eats Boater's Restaurant Guide," written by one of her friends, Lorena Landon. Joyce said her friend, an avid boater, wrote the book after realizing there was a need for a guide for boaters on where to find good food when they pulled into an unfamiliar town.
And speaking of food -- you knew this was coming -- we rewarded ourselves with Mexican food at El Pueblito's, a popular and colorful harbor restaurant.
Have a colorful day
