Plein Air in Port Orchard this week 10 am

foot ferry gates
     This week we venture out to the waterfront near the Port Orchard Foot Ferry which includes water views towards the Olympics, across to Bremmerton, and an elevated platform that will give you a great 360 view of all this or back toward the city. The usual waterfront models will be visible...ships, boats a few crusty buildings and some real nice flowers along the waterway walking path last time I was there in May. If water is not your thing or you want to get out of the weather, there is a cute "main street" just a block over with antique stores (Olde Central Antiques-think window display) and a few funky door/entries on the main drag.
     While Anne will be absent this week, Feather will be lurking  along the waterfront somewhere between the ferry area and the platform- set up by 10 am. Look for the lady in white with the funky hat. Bring your PB&J sack lunch to the platform area  shortly after noon if you want to gather with your fellow artists for a chat over lunch. See you there!
