Boats, MOHAI, and Seattle in the backgroundBoats, MOHAI, and Seattle in the background My girlfriend Lisa is a member of the Center for Wooden Boats, a maritime museum located on the south shore of Lake Union, next to the new Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) near Lake Union Park. They offer free public sails on their boats, and being a member, Lisa was able to sign us up ahead of time. So on Sunday morning (before heading back to the Ren Faire for a second day), we met up at the Center for Wooden Boats.

Our ship, The AdmirableOur ship, The Admirable The ship we took out was called The Admirable; we were part of a group of about a dozen people on board, along with three volunteer crew members. The day was sunny and hot, but the breeze kept us reasonably cool, and I had lots of good opportunities for photos, of fellow boats, and seaplanes (which were occasionally taking off and landing over our heads), and houseboats, building and factories along the shore.

There's not much else to say, really; I figure I can let the pictures speak for themselves.
