The gray has returned for a while. Why not have some festive color in Downtown Port Townsend to celebrate the new year?

Be safe tonight,

Photo of Port Townsend Paper Mill

 

TheĀ Port Townsend Paper Company operates this paper mill, which sits about a mile out on Larry Scott Trail. The mill is the largest private employer in the county and has provided jobs to the community for decades. Unfortunately, the paper business has been having rough times in the current economy. The mill is still running and we hope it continues to be successful enough to remain open. The loss of it would hit the community very hard.

There is an ever changing parade of boats in the Port of Port Townsend’s shipyard, at the Boat Haven. As you can see from the condition of this boat, it’s newly arrived.

Port Townsend Wharf Tricks

I went out on Union Wharf because of the beautiful light. I got quite a show. This cyclist was popping wheelies then balancing on the rear wheel of his bike. It looks like he’s balanced over the water. Fortunately there’s a small platform on the wharf far from any drops into Port Townsend Bay.

Afternoon glow

In late November, if we have sunny days as we’ve had this week, the late afternoon sun hits Water Street at a low angle. The street just seems to glow.
