Forks Open Aire Market ...

... is finally open for the summer. Hooray!

It opened last Saturday, the 23rd.

We like going to the FOAM. The local artisans have

interesting items; we get to catch up with people we haven't

seen in a while; and, it's a fun day out.

Memorial Day here in the US

Memorial Day pays tribute to the those who have given their lives
while serving our country.
We give our thanks to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice
for us, for the U.S.
Land of the Free, because of the Brave.

Birdfeeder visitors

The front bird on the right has some interesting markings. Different from the usual.
I haven't looked him up in the birdbook yet.
This was taken a few days ago. The storm we needed, with the rain, has finally arrived. Our rain is at about 33 inches for the year now. Still a ways to go to normal, but it's going.

Mill reopens with new purpose


A local mill, the Rosmond (sp.?), has reopened as a variety of ideas after renovations.
It was renamed the 110 Business Park (its on Hwy 110 just outside Forks). The downed tree behind it has been a landmark at the site for a long time. The truck gives some perspective of the size of the tree.


This piece is the nice landscaping in the middle of the grounds (I like the bridge), and the roundhouse is a gathering area under cover. It had a flea market in it today. After the rains today, the bridge probably had a little river running under it.
This is an indoor archery range that was getting a lot of attention at its grand opening today.


There was free target archery in a restricted area (for safety). They were shooting at a launched decoy. The kids to the left in the picture were doing the launching with what looked like a fixed bow. Clever set-up, and very safe.
