Summer Work

Wow, what has happened to summer? I know that it has been a long time since I posted my last blog and for that I am sorry. Between out of town guests, gardening, multiple birthday celebrations (too many to count), yard work, the occasional swim and all of the things we put off due to snow, most of my time has been sucked up into a one-way void. Yet with all of the summer mayhem that happens from June through September I have been able to create a few new pieces of work.

Here is a glimps of a project I am working on. I really hope to have about 6 of these done by September.

I hope all of you are enjoying summer/winter (depending upon which hemisphere you happen to be in).

West Port Pirates

Ever year we like to take a trip to the ocean. I am particularly fond of the Washington Coast. In the past years we have stayed at Kalaloch, but this year my mother-in-law wanted to go to Pacific Beach. I had never been there, but I have an adventurous spirit and am always ready to go anywhere on a moments notice. This is the first year that the annual trip was made into the Davis Family trip. All of my husband’s family was able to attend. Right before we left one of my sister-in-laws informed all of us that there was to be a Pirate Festival in West Port. One to never turn down the opportunity to dress up in pirate garb I packed my gear with excitement.

The Streets were lined with celeabrating pirates

The Famous Seattle Seafair Pirates made an appearance

This two man craft came ashore

There was live music.
Saddly I can not remember the name of this fabulous duo.

Even my little one got into the spirit

He fished for treasure with his daddy

We had a great day looking at landlocked boats
