Jack Olmsted of Videoblogging 206 pointed us to two more of his vlog entries. The top one shows the Lady Washington going back into the water after more than a week of scheduled maintenance. The second video is an interview of Ben Saint, education coordinator for the Lady Washington. Listen for the wonderful sea shanties by David LoVine, who makes an appearance at the end of the top video. Many thanks, Jack, for the great material! Do you have a video of Lady Washington or Hawaiian Chieftain? Email the YouTube link to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bob Giles, host of In Case You Missed It on public access TV in the Olympia area, sent us this video of an interview of Capt. "Evil" Ryan Meyer on a transit from Tacoma to Olympia in August. (Really, Ryan, you're getting way too much time in front of a camera these days.) If you have video to share, email us a link at email@example.com.
Former Lady Washington crew member Karen Clapp sent us these photos of the exhibits at the US-Japan Friendship Museum in Kushimoto, Japan. The original Lady Washington was one of the first US merchant ships to visit Japan. Karen took the pictures during a visit to the museum last weekend. Do you have a favorite photo of Lady Washington or Hawaiian Chieftain you can share? Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
