September SketchCrawl -- Riverplace, September 17

Sketch by Carrie Holst
At our last sketchcrawl I asked participants what they wanted to do next, and discovered there's clear consensus that we can never get enough time along Portland's waterways.

So let's draw boats at Riverplace!

This location offers us coffee, food, restrooms, outdoor seating, and views of the marina. There's a pedestrian walkway along the marina with good views of bridges and the southern prospect of Portland's Waterfront Park.

10am - Meet at the US Merchant Marine Memorial, 1510 S Harbor Way, at the entrance to the Riverplace Marina Public Dock. See map below. 

12pm - Return to meeting place for sketchbook throwdown.

Food & Drink (& Restrooms)
Just down Riverplace from our meeting location are Little River Cafe, which has restrooms, and Upstream Coffee. There's also a public restroom 5 minutes' walk south near Pajaro.

This is an 8-minute walk from the Streetcar 5th & Market stop, and about 10 minutes from the Yamhill District MAX station. Many buses that cross Hawthorne Bridge will have a stop within 10 minutes of Riverplace.
