Tall ship slide show

Unity of Port Townsend presents sea captain and photographer Jacques Thiry in a slide show presentation of his experiences building and sailing Brig Unicorn – the tall ship made famous as the Black Pearl in “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The event will be at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center, 3918 San Juan Ave in Port Townsend, at 7 p.m. Friday, April 25. A minimum donation of $10 is asked at the door.

Poetry in motion

Through May 31, the Port Angeles Library is partnering with Olympic National Park to offer Poetry Walks, an ongoing event that is part of the library’s “Get Moving!” series.

Library and park officials hope the combination of poetry and nature encourages local residents to get out and be active. During Poetry Walks, poems are placed on signs in multiple locations along three trails in Olympic National Park: the Living Forest Trail, the Peabody Creek Trail and Spruce Railroad Trail.

All three trails can be accessed without paying fees and allow users to enjoy landscapes and a variety of poems for inspiration.
