Labor Day weekend each year Harbor Days are observed in Olympia at Percival Landing. The event is mainly about vintage tug boats and a few other visiting vessels. Large crowds converge on the Landing and make it hard to photograph the boats. So, I got up fairly early on Sunday morning and got down there before the crowds.

Getting up early allowed you to get a picture of this tug without people all around it. It’s a good annual event for sure. I can see why all the people come to take a look
