Commencement of artists en plein air

This week the plein air group goes on a "road trip" to Commencement Bay. We will be working in Tacoma's Marine Park near the Les Davis Pier along Ruston Way. There is a restroom and snack shop by Les Davis pier, also good parking, shore and pier access, choice of  vistas, and the old fireboat to the east side, if you don't like bay and boats- they have nice flower baskets on lamp posts and entertaining birds. The fun starts at 10am, remember your sunscreen, perhaps a sack lunch  or consider a local resteraunt in Ruston (Antique Sandwich Co). See you then.
Directions:
From Narrow's Bridge... take Jackson (1st) exit) turn left at top of ramp- follow across Freeway- this becomes Narrow's Drive- stay on Narrow's until you hit a signal- turn left at signal. It is still Narrow's Drive- but becomes North Vassault- follow Vassault (a long time!) to stop sign. Turn right at stop sign (North 51st Street) and follow 51st past signal (Pearl) and follow down to new roundabout- stay "straight" (ok 2nd exit ) and that becomes Ruston Way. 
Just past the Lobster Shop is the Marine Park- do not go in first parking lot on shoreside- watch for second parking lot by Burger shop/Les Davis Pier- turn left into that parking lot and look for Anne and I in the vicinity!
