What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | August 5

Hey there Seattle!

One of my favorite times of year… FLEET WEEK!  This is a stunning experience if you’ve never gone – you can go aboard big navy ships and talk to crewmen who will explain the operations of the ships and answer all your questions.

If you are a fan of the military, American History or boating, this is for you!  

Here’s a picture of me down there last time!

Non sibi sed patriae!
