dragonboat adventure

The women of the Portland Art Collective enjoyed an outing on the Willamette River, thanks to Tory's cousin, Les, who coaches a dragonboat team in Portland. Les agreed to guide our group in the fundamentals of paddling a dragonboat. I decided to forego the paddling, playing photographer and cheerleader instead. Go team!

Here are the ladies, all decked out in full pirate regalia, taking final instructions from Coach Les before leaving the dock.

And they're off!

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!

After arriving back at the docks,Paula, Tory, and the rest of the crew headed for land to enjoy a pizza lunch...and more laughs.
