Awesome Fleet Week along the waterfront

Sketched Aug. 4, 2:52 p.m. [Click sketch to see larger]
Seafair’s cornucopia of powerful machines really blows my mind. Last year I sketched the hydroplane races on Lake Washington and this year I’m turning my attention to the war ships docked on the waterfront for Fleet Week. Through the weekend, you can visit the vessels and talk to the U.S. Navy personnel. Don’t forget to bring your photo ID and be prepared to go up and down steep stairs.
Wednesday afternoon I caught a glimpse of the fleet from the terrace at Victor Steinbrueck Park.
More sketches coming Friday.
