All week I found myself in the right place at the right time.
Sunday morning a convivial group of Urban Sketchers met at Fishermen’s Terminal. It’s a great place to wander for privileged views of nautical vessels. The boats are like people each with a name and a tale to tell. The light green Ballard Bridge can be seen in the distance to the north. Queen Anne Hill and Magnolia Hill rise up to the south.

During a hike through Discovery Park in Magnolia, I retreated from the hot sun on the rugged beach to cool off in the dense shade along one of the park’s roads. The difference in temperature revived my energy levels enough to sketch the vista through the thickly forested hiking grounds to the water, landfall, and clouds beyond, and for the return hike to the car.
