Maritime Festival in Gig Harbor
Sunset over Gig Harbor during June 5-6 Maritime Festival
Everyone loves a parade, especially the big kids who dressed up like pirates during the Maritime Festival, one of Gig Harbor's most popular downtown events. It continues Sunday, so get down there if you haven't yet. Blessing of the Fleet is from 1-1:30!
Harbor WildWatch brigade!
Extra floating docks were added for the festival, and I took this picture Saturday from one of them looking back at the old net shed. You can see the tents and balloons beyond.
Little moon jelly (about 2-3 inches) that we spotted in the harbor.
I am a quilt artist and journalist living in the Pacific Northwest after stints all around the country. I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with other fabric artists but soon started weaving in threads about colorful places, people, food, wildlife and anything else that might bring color to your world.
