I thought this painting was done 6 weeks ago… but it kept nagging at me to change something.

My summer pastime has been ‘boat watching’. This unique hobby is easily done at my summer hangout… the Montlake Cut, where boats from Lake Union pass through to Lake Washington. Rarely a boring moment as every sort of boaty vehicle passes through…
Motorized surfboards (that ride above the water so fast they have to wear helmets)
Floating boat airplanes that glide through the cut while floating
Sailboats (which get to have the Montlake Bridge open up for them)
And college beer boats - where summer sport is for boaters with beer to toss the cans into the water for swimmers on shore to collect.
