Kingston in Washington (not Tasmania)

On a semi-rainy day we hopped on the ferry at Edmonds, a suburb of Seattle, and sailed into Kingston to explore.

The gangway was decorated with great art made from local beach findings.Kingstonferry terminalPNG

I sketched this cute boy in his puffer jacket drawing at a table on the ferry.

We passed by this large quilt displayed in a shop window.  I only captured a small portion of it.  I’ve never seen one like this where in between the petals it is just left open (fabric-less).  I think it is quite original and creative.  I’m sure many a quilter may be uncomfortable with this being declared as the finished state.

We had lunch here.  I am surprised to see quite a heavy French influence and presence in Seattle.

We walked along the water…

and then took the ferry trip back to Edmonds, Washington, USA for more Seattle sights and day trips.

Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time, take care. 🙂

One thought on “Kingston in Washington (not Tasmania)

  1. I’m really enjoying your drawings, photos and explorations, Patty! 🙂 I didn’t know Seattle had a strong French influence! That really is an imaginative quilting idea! 🙂
