Visiting Chehalis Again

Well, we went to see Rick's cousin, Melinda, last weekend and had a blast. We went to the hay farm that I put up last week's picture of the week from. They had a quite a few old barns, one was 100 years old, give or take. Unfortunately it had a lot of white plastic covering areas needing repair so we had to shoot around all that. Another barn we went to see the owls in (to no avail) was circa 1940's. They also had an interesting bridge that they had to have rebuilt that was very photographic (do you say it was photogenic if it's an inanimate object?). And horses, fields, trees, the bull, etc.

On the drive to Boistfort, though, Rick and I were chomping at the bit. There were so many interesting falling barns, silos, fences, hardware, ponds, creeks, etc. Truly a photographers' dream. We're definitely going back there a little later in the spring to get shots of some of that other stuff when we have the time and control of the vehicle so that we can "STOP!!" when we wanna!

Back at Melinda's it was the usual chaos. The little heehaws all gathered 'round Rick as he stooped down to their eye (and mouth) level. The dogs ran, herded the heehaws and chased the ball and frisbees when thrown. Sarah hasn't been out there for years and seemed to enjoy all the critter activity.

Dinner was, as usual, again, FANTASTIC. Teriyaki marinated salmon Danny caught and brought back from Alaska (I believe), a yummy salad w raspberry vinaigrette dressing and asparagus grilled on the barby beside the salmon. We ate, talked, messed with the cameras and computers and just had fun.

I was just losing my voice and headed for a pretty nasty cold that I'm just now finally over enough that I think I'll be going to meeting tomorrow.

Today we had another fun day out taking pix. We headed for Roslyn, Wa, where the 90's TV show "Northern Exposure" was filmed. One of it's main attractions is it's cemeteries. That's right - plural! There's about 8 cemeteries all packed in, one right after another!

But that's another blog.

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
