This morning I have a safety announcement for the citizens of Coupeville and its visitors. I just spotted a defibrillator mounted to the side of the Collections Boutique store at the Front Street end of the Coupeville Wharf. We can only hope that no one ever needs to use it but it’s there should an emergency arrive.
Do you see it, next to the little library box?
I was out walking early this morning and the sun wasn’t quite up yet but I still got this interesting photo of Mt. Baker just above the trees.
And once again, I just couldn’t resist taking yet another photo of a sunrise over the wharf and Penn Cove. Who could get tired of this view?
The schooner Suva was basking in the morning sun. I copied this description from the Suva website.
“Come aboard the Suva and sail back in time! This Gatsby-era schooner was built in 1925 for Coupeville resident and attorney, Frank J Pratt, Jr. She was designed by Ted Geary, a noted Seattle naval architect. Built in Hong Kong, then shipped to British Columbia for spars and rigging, Suva sailed into Coupeville making a grand entrance. Since that time, Suva remained in Puget Sound waters. She is now the proud flagship of the Coupeville Maritime Heritage Foundation, only her sixth owner, and is open to the public for tours and sailing. Come discover her charm. Welcome aboard!”
What a beautiful old boat!
And that’s a wrap for this weeks Hump Day. Thanks for walking with me and I’ll see you again real soon.
