Finding and staying in the shade on this very hot 107 degree day.
This Dad and his lovely daughter were at "The Peak" interviewing tourist to find out where we were all coming from and what we liked best about Hong Kong. She could not have been sweeter, her English perfect and her Dad there to help her with her homework assignment.
The Western Flyer
American author John Steinbeck’s book The Log from the Sea of Cortez (1951) chronicles a scientific collecting expedition he took with biologist Edward F. “Doc” Ricketts in 1940 aboard the Western Flyer, a 76-foot purse seiner built in Tacoma in 1937. The boat sank in the Swinomish Channel in October 2012, was raised after two weeks, then sank and was raised again in January 2013. It was hauled out at the Port of Port Townsend Boat Haven on July 5, coated with barnacles inside and out.
