POST 1399; AUGUST 09, 2014; WINTHROP, WASHINGTON
Once again, we are out under the stars. Fortunate to upload my chosen photographs, but running out of light to see, so may not complete my desired narrative.
Today, Saturday, have solicited and arranged a ride for SAM and ME some 60 miles over the daunting North Cascade Pass. We are now in the Western Theme Town of WINTHROP, Washington...on the physical edge of the big fire...which headed away from Winthrop, thank goodness .
Following few images are of the Art QUARRY, where I thoroughly enjoyed two nights with the real BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, whom I would love to join.
Let me name those I recall: HEATHER, ERIC, TASCHE, LYNN, KAI, WILL, MATTEA - a most exceptional woman - ISLANDO, FIONA, REBY, JOSH, CHELSY, FALLON, VERN,
...and I sincerely apologize for those whom I have missed.
...and ISLANDO, Majority Holder and Prime Mover of this paradise in the making.
...and SAM and ME are on our way...
