Pirate Ships

Continuing on with my weekend in San Francisco, on Sunday I crossed the Bay to Sausalito for a SF Sketchers Meet Up.  What a fun group it was.  And how nice to sit on the dock of the bay in good company and sketch something (the Hawaiian Chieftain) interesting that wasn’t moving, at least for the 3 hours we were therer.  So I plunged right in and got mesmerized by the masts and booms and riggings and pulleys and ropes and hitches. That’s almost the extent of my seaman’s vocabulary, but we got to listen to the crew and watch and learn. And you can visit the Meet Up blog and see more sketches.

This lady seemed like the captain because she was giving the orders, and meanwhile getting in all these wonderful positions which invited gesture sketches.
