Default Summer Activity (Late Spring) -- Dragon Boats

Every year as part of the annual Portland Rose Festival, Dragon Boat races are held on the Willamette River in downtown Portland. These are oriental style canoes made and provided by Japan. Each boat holds a rowing crew of about ten people.

The first shot show the finish of a race while the second is a closeup of the boats.





Enjoy
Cal

So...when are you going to move up here? Lots of Californians seem to be migrating Northward!.

I have only seen the boats as we cross over the heading up to the mountains, I would love to head to the waterfront sometime to take pictures.

Several attempts have been made to start a tournament or similar here in Hawaii with modest success. Your picture really captures nicely the colorful designs.
