Inside is a collection of navel artifacts from boats and tools to floats and nets. More information is here: http://www.cityofgigharbor.net/gig-harbor-historic-netsheds/
Tacoma USk member, Feather, has made arrangements for us to be able to sketch inside the Netshed. Meet there at 10am. We'll sketch until 12:30 and then meet again to share sketches.
Parking is free but most of the road is 2 hour parking on the street .
[There is a trolly but it does not start running on Wed. until 11am. It runs along the waterfront and an option if you don't want to have to more your care every 2 hours. It's 50 cents or $1 for all day. FREE for seniors and persons with disabilities with valid Regional Reduced Fare Permit. Or use your Orca card. The park & ride is on Kimble road]
There are some options for near by restaurants for lunch or bring a bag lunch if you prefer.
