The one full day I spent in Port Townsend was rainy.  In fact, the original plan was to drive over to Hurricane Ridge, but I scrapped it on account of the weather.  Local residents say it is always beautiful except when the wind is blowing the wrong way past the paper mill.  From Port Townsend I took the ferry back to Whidbey Island, then drove North across Deception Pass to Anacortes, exactly the same place I was a week earlier when bound for San Juan Island.  From there I boarded a ferry to Sidney BC in Canada.

What do you think of the new features in the Reader?  It took me a while to figure out how to get my posts to look the way I wanted.  A featured image and using Standard post format did the trick.  I used to use the Image format.  By the way, I am closing in on 2 million clicks, so please look around and help me get there.

There isn’t much I can say about Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a sleepy town on the Ohio River where the main attraction happens to be Bourbon distilleries.  Rand Paul represents them in the US Senate for whatever that is worth.

Demolition is complete.  The place looks like a war zone.  Monday they will spray fungicide.  The house has dried out, and it is odor free.  Getting to this stage cost about $10,000.  I don’t have an estimate of insurance recovery yet, and a building permit is at least 4 weeks away.

These are from the first and second day in Amsterdam.  I felt a few had a significant message in the color so that is how they are presented.  It is important not to be locked into any particular format.  Besides, when shooting digital you can have it both ways. My neighbors tell me the street in front of my house in Houston is a river.  One of them is going to check on the place today, but I really can’t do anything about it.
