A mate in the US wants an Akubra hat so I am going to see what I can do for him. One of these.

So after I shower I will head to my trusty Akubra store and get the gist.

I also must do some shopping.

So exciting! Consider

Had to Google that. It turns out you can get them in the U.S. Thumbsup

I like this one:

They are good hats. I have 4. Turns out there's a three month wait. They make them only twice a year.

Chas, would you please provide me a link to where they can by purchased in the US?

Many thanks. Dale

Tacoma Maritime Festival

Sumner Rhubarb Pie Festival
Today is a good day because we are attending both.
Incidentally, I am working on a river levee project and will be destroying about half an acre of rhubarb in the next few days. If erx or adrianime wants rhubarb send me a PM!

Some pics from the maritime event.

the first boat is a one of a kind made by a family company that made canoes.
   

In the second and third pic, young people are assembling rowing skiffs to launch that day, with the help of some old salts. Later they will be dried out and painted.

   
   
I have pictures of the engine on this boat. It was launched in the 20's and had a 6 cylinder diesel made in Seattle. I had never heard of a "Washington" engine.

Very cool, I always wanted to try my hand at building a wooden boat.

Any of you open water, long distance swimmers?

Come on down to our annual Lighthouse swim, just 4.5 miles...each way.

I wouldn’t call it fun, a 9 mile swim is grueling.

True. But I love being active and pushing myself physically. So to me, while certainly grueling, it would be a form of fun. Big Grin
