Poulsbo’s Third of July Fireworks

The yellow arrows are the three Poulsbo marinas. Leftmost is the city marina. The Poulsbo Yacht Club is in the middle, and Liberty Bay Marina is to the right. The purple arrow is the fireworks barge. We are the blank spot in the center.

Everything else is boats here for the show. Big boats, little boats, rafts of boats, lots of boats.

Port Door Done

I spent some quality time working on the starboard door a while ago. That post is here.
