Time lapse video shows 2019 Wooden Boat Festival unfolding

Posted

A virtual beehive of activity, Point Hudson Marina during the weekend of Wooden Boat Festival starts each day mellow but ramps up with the sun to a constant stream of visitors.
Time lapse photography, unlike video, boils trends and days down to their essence, which is why we use it occasionally to help Leader Readers see patterns and comparisons.
Here's a link to a time lapse of this year's festival: 
This one is occasionally marred by rain. In addition, night hours have been sped up because so few details are visible.
Added music, which is generally frowned on in journalistic circles, signals that this is not reportage so much as an appreciation for the year's biggest event, which drew more than 30,000 people to Port Townsend's waterfront to partake of that pastime Kenneth Grahame wrote of so stirringly in "The Wind in the Willows".
"Believe me, my young friend," Ratty says to Mole. "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
For a special extra report on this year's Wooden Boat Festival, see pages 11-15 of the Sept. 11 edition of the Port Townsend Leader.
