White linen night is held on the first Saturday in August in several cities including Austin, Houston and New Orleans.  It is a celebration of the summer heat.

I took these about 3 weeks ago at the studio complex now known as The Silos. It started out in an old warehouse on Winter street and has grown.  A major real estate development is planned for the area.

It’s wonderful when I point my camera at people unannounced and get smiles.  Every single person in the group gave me a hug.

Rather than arriving via Victoria’s beautiful harbor, my ferry landed at Sidney a small town about 30 minutes away by highway.  Canadian customs was unusually quick.  My first stop was Fisherman’s Wharf, a 15 minute walk from the harbor.  Locals will try to convince you to take a water taxi.

The one full day I spent in Port Townsend was rainy.  In fact, the original plan was to drive over to Hurricane Ridge, but I scrapped it on account of the weather.  Local residents say it is always beautiful except when the wind is blowing the wrong way past the paper mill.  From Port Townsend I took the ferry back to Whidbey Island, then drove North across Deception Pass to Anacortes, exactly the same place I was a week earlier when bound for San Juan Island.  From there I boarded a ferry to Sidney BC in Canada.

After one night in Leavenworth I drove back to the coast and took a ferry to Port Townsend.  This was really poor planning.  It would have been a lot easier to tour the Cascades before going to San Juan Island, then stay out on the coast for the remainder of the trip.  Along the way that day I passed some funky stores.  Port Townsend features a  weird outdoor sculpture exhibit that really can’t be called a park or garden.  Next time I go to Seattle I am not renting a car at the airport either.  The car sat in a garage for four days while I was there, with the parking costing $120 and the rental would have been about $120 less as well.
