Boats as Art

The recent Wooden Boat Show in Depoe Bay was a hoot, with lots of boats on display, food and beverages, vendor and information booths - including the Port of Toledo's - which featured live boatbuilding demonstrations, and a crab feed! Here is a shot of the bow of an exceptional boat with inlaid turquoise and coral. Amazing, huh?
This guy was having a great time... he looks very relaxed.
There were quite a few boats on display there... and this sign:
... was on this boat.
Lots of pretty boats to see.
And chat about.
The bagpiper played for a long time, it was awesome.
The Depoe Bay Chamber does a great job of putting on this event. The organizers have been a huge help to the Port of Toledo in getting our own Wooden Boat Show off the ground. Salud!
