The last day of Artfest

I've been very busy getting ready to give birth to my big kids project her in my area working with at risk youth. Stay tuned for more details... And I didn't forget the giveaway... I just can't find my bag of trades at the moment to photograph them... I will post them soon too!


Saying goodbye to the darling Katie's Cottage where I stayed. Within walking distace of the fort, but not at nite in the very very dark, and loaded down with a ton of supplies.... but a good optionn and value all the same, once I figured out how to work the heat. I froze the first night... but the rest of the time I was very cozy. We drove around on the way back instead of taking the ferry. It was fun crossing this bridge that reminded me of a small green Golden Gate. I wanted to see Orca's... but never did. Next year, I am taking a few extra days and I will go to the San Juan's which is where I am told you can see a lot of them...

It was back to the airport with Ellen and Jo and a car loaded down to the rims with stuff. I don't think any of us got a picture, but I was AMAZED at all the stuff we crammed into that little Prius... Ellen was wonderfully gracious and mailed me my box of junk back to keep my bags under weight. I packed all my clothes into a small suitcase inside a larger one on the way there, and going back I had one large one empty to hold all my stuff. I could have fit it all, but was worried a bit about weight... So I opted to ship my package that I had shipped to the fort, back home...
I spent the afternoon talking with Danita in the airport. When we walked up to her gate, she was being called over the loudspeaker because it was final boarding call and they were preparing to leave without her. We snapped this quick photo together before she ran down the boarding ramp...
There are a lot of blogs with more info and postings about Artfest. Check out &rew's blog here he took some awesome photos of all the festivities, the town and may other cool things... Tina has some cool photos as well... Here is another bunch of pix from Heather . Sharon has some lovely photos of the fort buildings and the town on her blog, her photography is amazing. I love seeing all the photos... Things that I as a newby or "Festal Virgin" didn't know to look for... I am still on a high from the whole experience...
