Runners watch the Barker go by

Maybe a brief shower cooled off the runners but more runners than usual sitting, laying and suffering on the Maritime Museum back yard turned around and some even stood up to see the James R. Barker pass by (above). The Barker itself was a little excited, providing everybody with a double dose of whistle. It came in around 2 in the afternoon, the Herbert C. Jackson departed at 10 in the morning and was not noticed by most runners. They had other things on their mind.
