The past week- and really the entire summer - has been a wonderful time to head to the Navy Yard and catch the Wind On Water kinetic sculpture exhibit, a series of eight metal designs that move in the wind and invite folks to stop and enjoy.  Created by renowned kinetic sculptor Lynman Whitaker, the creations are mesmerizing and fun.  Here, one of the designs in front of DryDock #1 twirls in the wind on Monday. Meanwhile, Tess the dog found a comfortable spot to enjoy these shiny sculptures in Shipyard Park.
