The Coots will be getting a chance to see what's in the storage warehouses for the Columbia River Maritime Museum. We'll meet in the lobby of the museum at about 1:15 before going over to the storage buildings across the street. If you arrive early you can kill time wandering the main museum building. Tell the person at the desk you're with the group tour.

We won't be meeting for the big lunch on Pier 39 this year, because of the Covid. There's fish and chips at the Bowpicker, across the street from the Museum, or find your lunch elsewhere and then meet us for the tour.

If you want some culture, the Annual Fisher Poets Gathering starts on Thursday. It goes on night and day at several locations, but most of the activity is in the evenings.
