I’m off to Grays Harbor County today. Tall Ships Tacoma is six months away, and The News Tribune is going to be ramping up its coverage of the festival and tall ships in the area.

That’s why photographer Russ Carmack and I are heading to Aberdeen. A giant lathe (the biggest in North America, I’m told) is turning a mast as part of the repairs on the Niña, a reproduction of one of Christopher Columbus’ ships.
