"Tall Ships Visit the TriCities"

The Lady Washington is moored across the Columbia river the Pasco marina this week.  Large crowds of visitors have plied her timbers of the past few days as she sits moored next to her traveling companion, the Hawaiian Chieftain.  See more of them below.

The Lady Washington from a side view.  I had to crawl through some rather dense brush to find this location and I think it was worth it. I've been aboard her in Port Angeles, so didn't feel the need to do so again today.  There was a long line of people, old and new, waiting to get aboard. 

The "Hawaiian Chieftain" sits along side "Lady Washington" in the marina.  I chose to sketch them separately rather than together because one, by itself, is complicated enough!  I don't know much about this one; it seemed just a tad larger than "LW."
