Your facilitator (that would be me) will not be leading an event on Thursday due to a week long painting event with Plein Air Washington Artists on Whidbey Island this week. I hope my true "die hard" artists (you know who you are) will either work on finishing those great starts for the show or go independently on your own this week to find some beauty in your own surroundings that you might share with us at the show. Remember, what goes in the show does not have to be specifically from the events we share so go visit your garden, favorite park or waterfront and I'll see you all in September with stories to share. Enjoy! -Feather

|The old town of Manette from the other side of the bridge. Yes the big 1st structure is the boatshed!|
Note the parking on the upper street by the white car... with stairs descending behind the place.
This week we have a trek in sight... kinda funky, kinda scenic, kinda unusual, kinda remote, kinda tasty... just across the Manette bridge in Bremerton is a restaurant called the Boat Shed restaurant. With beautiful panoramic views from the outdoor deck there is also a ramp/dock that takes you to water level for a super view of the bridge. Not digging the water scene? Cruise around the crusty old town buildings behind the restaurant for texture, some dating back as long ago as 1891 but swing back by for a bite on the deck at the restaurant noonish.

|Lunch chat after session at|
Chalet in the Woods
Breaking away from Gig Harbor, we will be heading down the Key Peninsula to a little place, just past Key Center, called"Home". It is here that a friend of mine has relocated from Fox Island. Nan found a sweet little stretch of land that looks down a steep orchard embankment for a vast view of Joe's Bay.
