If you are anything like me, you love the water. The great scenery and landscapes are some the reasons we brave the dreary, cold, and wet winters in Western Washington. While most of us can only dream of owning a boat, during say retirement, many others have made this hobby a passion. This is especially true for the members of the Olympia Wooden Boat Association. http://www.olywoodenboat.org/default.htm
Saturday and Sunday, May 7th and 8th, from 10am to 6pm the Olympia Wooden Boat Association is having their 32nd Annual Wooden Boat Fair. Entertainment includes a childrens boat building booth, arts & crafts for sale and an International food alley.
If it is anything like the Tacoma Maritime festival, the boat building is great and with a good coat of shellac, you’ve just made a tub toy that will last for years. Well, the sail might need to be replaced because it IS paper, but the boat itself is really neat for kids to play with. Im sure it will be a lot of fun, and since my family loves the water so much, we might put this on our “Must-do” list.
