The boats, and the onlookers, crowd for position.

The waters off Whidbey were hoppin’ Tuesday afternoon.

A rare parade of tall boats sailed through Admiralty Inlet on their way to the Festival of Sail in Tacoma.

The boats, which regularly plied the waters in these parts in the 19th century, brought out gawkers galore.

One of those onlookers was local paparazzi John Fisken, who brought his camera to the show and was kind enough to pass on the pics seen above.
