I’ve had a hard time finding the time to update the blog lately! With my part-time job expanding hours for the holiday season, normal holiday activities and trying to systematically transition from a Windows computer to a Mac computer, I hardly know whether I am coming or going!
This photo, of an abandoned boat with mooring chains and a mooring ball was shot in or near Fort Worden in Port Townsend, Washington. The photo always suggests an untold story to me. It may have been a lifeboat at one time and the name on it appears to maybe be Russian. How did it come to be land-bound in the sand approximately 50 yards from the water’s edge? I’d like to know the story!
Fort Worden is today a conference center. The fort itself was built in the late 1800s to guard the entrance to Puget Sound. If you saw pictures of the fort, you might find it familiar looking. It was the sight of the filming of one of my favorite films, “An Officer and a Gentleman”. Richard Gere’s character, Zack Mayo, well may have run by this sight during scenes of his physical conditioning in the movie.
