Wow, what a long day, or days. We caught the red eye from Seattle to Boston, getting in at 7am and we hit the tourist streets running in an effort to get on Eastern time. This sketch was done late in the afternoon of the second day without sleep. Let's face it travel to a rarely visited city makes up for the lake of Zs'

It was an expensive good time and we unwisely chose to do a bunch of water rides just as the sun was starting to set, burrr.
We stayed at the Reunion Resort with its three golf courses (designed by Watson, Palmer and Nicklaus), ten pools and a water park. Lots of money here, makes one with no money feel a little out of place.
This sketch was done on our last day while the girls were at the water park. It turned out a little cartoony for me, but it had to be quick because the temp was in the mid 80's and as humid as a steam room.

This sketch was done just outside the Saturn Rocket exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center. The taller building is the vehicle assembly building and is the world's tallest single story building at 525 ft and covers 8 acres. This is the place where space shuttles and Saturn rockets were assembled. The weather was partly cloudy, windy and warm and in the time it took me to do this sketch I managed to get a painful sunburn, hey I'm from Seattle, we won't see the sun for two more months....

When you walk in you are ask to remove your shoes and it was the variety of foot wear that initially caught my eye. That and they weren't swinging back and fourth and doing back flips.....

I don't know what building this is, it's old, boarded up and is in need of someone's big wallet to get her back into shape. Let's hope that happens, it's still a grand building even in it's current condition.
There are a number of mills in the Port of Tacoma and most all have their steam/smoke stacks going. They provide their own cloud system even on the nicest of days.
Don't know if I would do this tall format again, doesn't bode well for computer viewing.
