Worn on Water Street

whirly-gig hat

Traffic on Water Street in Port Townsend is slow enough that I had the time to take a quick snapshot of the cute couple in front of me. I had followed them from Sims Way, where they traveled at speeds high enough to make the gentleman’s propeller a mere blur in the picture.



  1. I’m pretty sure that’s Rex Rice, a fabulous musician/trombone player. And his lovely wife Carrie. I’m saying this because I saw them once a couple of years ago in a convertible and the propeller hat definitely caught my eye. Rex once had his prize horn run over by a car. I believe he held a memorial service for it.

  2. There you go: If you are looking for a town full of interesting people, you won’t be disappointed in Port Townsend!
