Port Pirate Fest

Last Saturday was Port Washington's annual Pirate Festival. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and rainy so the turnout wasn't as good as it has been in the past.
Here's the bow of the ship WINDY coming in to dock. You can go out on a tall ship and sail in Lake Michigan.

My friends come in from out of town and here's DD (on the left) and their daughter all dressed up for Pirate Fest. About 50% of the people who attend are normally in costume (think Renaissance Fair). The girls get a real kick out of dressing up with all their pirate garb.


This picture was taken on Friday when the weather was great and about 75 degrees. This is the picture of the harbor coming in to Port Washington from Lake Michigan. It was too bad the weather changed so much. I know that if the weather had stayed constant that alot more people would have come.
