What Color is Your Town Today?

Today, my town is Olympia, Washington, home to Harbor Days, which for 37 years has celebrated the best boat ever- the tugboat. To say I have had a lifelong love affair is not telling the entire story. I once actually bid on a tug, wondering at the time how in the heck I would bring it up from Argentina if I was to win the bid. At age 20, you cross those bridges when you come to them.

Owning an Argentinian tug was not in the cards for me, but my love of tugboats has never waned.

 So today my colors are the colors of the Creosote. Green, white, black, salted wood, a sprinkling of rust. She needs a bit of sprucing up, but she's beautiful where it really counts. I can identify with that.
