La Push, Washington – the land of werewolves and vampires

My daughter was the perfect age to be caught up in the whole Twilight craze. As a young teen, they were her introduction to the realm of young adult horror and fantasy fiction. She read all the books, and saw all the movies. She was there on the upswing when Twilight was the most wonderful thing […]

Port Townsend, WA – Fort Worden State Park

Washington State parks are impossible to get into in the summer, unless you pre-book, which we hate to do. We felt lucky enough to get into the marina RV park, but we had to go over and see what we were missing on the other side of town. It’s a gorgeous little park, with gorgeous sandy […]

Jefferson – the 51st state?

It was down in Paso Robles that we’d first heard of a secession plan to take the northern part of California and the southern part of Oregon and make it into a 51st state named Jefferson. Funny that we’d just now heard of it, since the idea had been hatched way back in 1941. It […]

Vengeance, Seals and Cliffhangers

Years ago I rented the dvd of Citizen Kane. On all the greatest movies lists, I had planned to see it for years. I really enjoyed the movie, but even better was what was on the second dvd. It was a documentary about Orsen Welles, called “The Battle Over Citizen Kane” which showed how making […]
