fay at ecola state park where the wind blows in from the pacific and bends trees like a pint of stella
A little south of seaside is Ecola State Park with rather oar-somme views of Cannon beach
quite a spot for a spot of lunch
followed up with a mini-hike along the cliff...
...to Indian beach and another amazing sunset
the drag down I5 to seaside for an extended thanksgiving break was well worth it. loads of beach time — not bad for November, especially as this time last year we were throwing snow balls
oh, and the turkey went down well too (with yorkshires !)
big thanks to katie & martin

well, someone has to make sure they stay clean
quick snap before granddad headed off to seatac
the run down to the airport can be a bit dodgy — hence the profusion of camo gear
Not the best way to start a presentation!
This thing only has one input: the feed from the PC.
A small hike with granddad and Rachel to the falls at Olallie State Park. We did the hike backwards, because dad missed the exit.

After showing us how to: balance in a capula; sketch sculptures; colour in menus; and eat ice cream, the boys left for the Boeing IMAX theatre so the girls could take granddad shopping.
Who got the better deal?
We need to tread carefully around the subject for this post since lovely Fay studied at London's
Central St. Martin's College of Art & Design
, but we're not too sure what's sculpture and what's park at the
Olympic Sculpture Park
Can you help sort which is which?
The girls bravely left Les and I in charge, and nipped up to Orcas for a couple of days at Fawlty Towers . We think they had fun, but every time they try and talk about it they descend into giggles...
A mystery for the neighbours: we had another strange man riding around on the tractor! This one also claiming to be 'the granddad'.
It's been weeks and weeks, but still it just wobbles...
