"Motor Boat Marina"


I sketched this from a dock that I paddled up to this morning. This building is used as a parking garage by the UW Surplus Department. The surplus store is out of the frame to the left. That building is wrapped and being painted. I was chatting with some of the painters, who had a net and were pulling dead fish out of the water ( the same water I had my feet in. ) The fish are about 3 inches long and have sharp dorsal spines. Not sure what they are, but I see them often when I am paddling around in Portage Bay and the other side of the Montlake Cut. They were joking about eating them.
