Friday Afternoon Club: Boats, Blooms, Beaches

Late, late, late, this post is. Hopefully better so than never.

If you live on Bainbridge and you hurry, you could still make a beach walk hosted by Kitsap marine experts, 10 a.m. to noon at the Bainbridge Island ferry dock beach; free. “Naturalists will be on the beach sharing their excitement and knowledge of marine life with the public.” Maybe they’ll get to wave at the recently released Mr. Bob, the octopus.

Chris-Craft enthusiasts have returned for the 21st year to the Port Orchard Marina with their sleek and elegant boats. The Chris Craft Rendezvous, which began Thursday and runs through Sunday, features educational opportunities, such as the flare demonstration at 11 a.m. today. Sunday 8 a.m. to noon is a pancake breakfast.

Back to the north end of the county, for Bainbridge in Bloom. I covered this garden tour some years ago, and I can say the show gardens were stunning.
“Visit 7 outstanding Bainbridge gardens, listen to local musicians, shop for plants and garden art made by local artists and attend lecture series with Ciscoe Morris and other well-known garden experts.”
The event, based at Woodward Middle School, 9125 Sportsman Club Road, began Friday and continues through Sunday.
Cost: $35 at door; Children under 12, $10; Bike the Bloom, $27.
Proceeds go to BAINBRIDGE ARTS & HUMANITIES COUNCIL to support arts and humanities on Bainbridge Island.

And by the Way:
Horseshoe and Wildcat lakes that people were accessing earlier this week when the really hot weather hit are open for the weekend.
