Seattle Photographer | Happy Opening Day!

Happy Monday, Everyone! It was a lovely weekend up here in the Pacific Northwest, and I was lucky to spend part of it on the water participating in Opening Day festivities. 🙂

If you’re not from around here, Opening Day marks the start of the boating season and is hosted by Seattle Yacht Club with a crew race, sailboat race, boat parade, and party. Pariticipants come from all over the Northwest including British Columbia and this event can be traced all the way back to 1895.

The weather this year was just so fantastic and it was great seeing all the boats that dressed up for the “Porthole to Paradise” theme. I really enjoyed seeing such a large turnout and I hope to attend the event next year too. 🙂

Very pretty image! It’s so funny to think of boat season being Florida, where it is boat season all year. Sounds like really fun festivities!

We love Seattle. Too bad we live all the was across the country to participate in things like this. Looks like you had a beautiful day to open the season with.
