    I was as enchanted by the buildings as by the boats. I took a few photos of the same building, noting the same. The lovely details added for no real purpose. Just beauty for the sake of beauty, in the form of nicely finished details.

    As aesthetic I aspire to in my life.

    Some people who must dislike you all very much have conspired to get me on an airplane and to the show.

    I donít understand what I did to deserve friends like I have, but whatever.

    I canít imagine it will be difficult to pick me out of the crowd? Or hear me. I am super loud IRL.

    There are some more. I took a bunch of snapshots with the intent to use them to draw from. Some are simply the beautiful grounds of the Seaport Museum itself, but most are boats, or boat adjacent. Haha.

    Itís a treat to Doodle these out and share them.

    Sadly I won’t be able to get there until early Saturday afternoon and will be there through Sunday. I would love to offer my boat as an R&R spot , but I will most likely be stuck out on an anchor (the rate to tie up is not in my budget).
    In past years the Oyster house (building out over the water next to Emma C. Berry) has been a meeting spot.

    Looking forward to seeing forumites!

    I ended up taking in the show very quickly on Friday morning after a Thursday trip to the Herreshoff Museum for some research and attend a talk about RELIANCE. A bit of truck trouble swiftly resolved (thank goodness) and then I drove home early to beat the hellacious "New England to Maine" summer traffic.

    The new boat exhibit in the big swoopy welcome center building and the Rosenfeld photos in the chapel was great. Tom Townsend's boats were the queens on the floats. He's a master. This one of his restorations now belongs to a neighbor: https://www.soundingsonline.com/features/cool-change
