Seafair Weekend

seafair 15

This past weekend, in what was undoubtedly my favorite day of the entire summer, a few boatfulls of friends and I celebrated Seafair Weekend. Thousands of boats gathered on Lake Washington for a weekend of air shows, hydroplane races, raft floating and fun.

My friends and I met up in the morning for a big home-cooked breakfast, then walked down to the docks for a few jumps into Lake Washington before taking off on the boats. The lake was packed with all different shapes and sizes of vessels, so after anchoring, we linked up with a few other parties. The day involved dancing, drinking, swimming, playing on rafts, making new friends, watching the air shows overhead, laying out talking on the boat decks… We even ended up bringing home an Irishman who apparently had a little too much to drink and found himself tucked away in our boat cabin when we landed!

Even though I grew up near Seattle, it was the first time I’d been to Seafair, but it’s a tradition I hope to continue from here on out. If you didn’t make it out last weekend, there are still plenty more events through the end of August. Here are a few pictures from the day…
