The first week in August marks the conclusion of the Sea Fair festivities. In conjunction with that, there are parades, the Blue Angels fly, and fleet week starts.
During fleet week, several ships come in to port and the majority of the sailors are given liberty. The rest give tours of the ships to anyone who is interested. This year there were four ships - two American and two Canadian. We went last year, and it was really interesting. Time didn't permit us to do the tours this year, but we did go down to the Sound to watch the ships come in. It was a beautiful day, and a very impressive site.
I know I'm late, since we're nearing the end of August, but here are some pictures from the day. Kendra was in fine form, and our friend Kai was with us as well.
