Looks like we're not the only ones who celebrate state lines . . . .

Jan & Denny lead the way down Denny's "project" to the beach . . .
Image 3 of 56
Denny's got these floats tied up for a future project . . .
Image 4 of 56
Only one of us was breathing hard after the climb up from the beach.

Jan enjoys her flowers, and Judy now has to keep them alive

One night we did S'mores, observed hopefully by neighborhood dog Tanner
Image 7 of 56
Jan & Denny are quite involved in the Longbranch Improvement Club
Image 8 of 56
'The Flotilla", a floating low-rent dwelling, was eventually relocated by local authorities following numerous sanitation complaints

OK - the DVD works. But the movie isn't one for folks who like happy endings . . .
Image 10 of 56
A lumberjacking demonstration found lots of willing bodies to serve as weights
Image 11 of 56
The event gave anybody a chance to try their hands . . .
Image 12 of 56
Some folks were better than others
Image 13 of 56
Determination was a big factor . . .
Image 14 of 56
So was falling off a log . . .

A local artist found a way to recycle old horns into water fountains. Must be an acquired taste . . .

A plumber's day off . . .

The "Photo Finish" will be their home for the next 5 weeks . . .

Shortly after they left, we spotted this flying northward toward Seattle
Image 20 of 56
It's not a blimp - it's a Zeppelin, larger than any blimp and more maneuverable. (Picture from their website.)

The views of Mt Ranier are always fascinating - even at moonrise
Image 22 of 56
This was the full moon in August, with the lights of Steilacoom, WA across the water
Image 23 of 56
The mountain is often shrouded in clouds. The views are very special . . .

That's Judy's cousin Sara and Jerry Barton, who came to visit for a couple of days
Image 25 of 56
They brought their kids - the fuzzy kind
Image 26 of 56
The animals are great friends, and both are very appealing
Image 27 of 56
Is it my breath??
Image 28 of 56
After two days, we (and Tanner) bid the Bartons safe travels . . .

A local fishing boat anchored near the house - one day it slipped anchor and just drifted away
Image 30 of 56
Never get tired of that view

Al tries to look like he knows what he's doing with the space behind the TV set . . .
Image 32 of 56
Worked out well - our new Hi Def TV and speakers are great.
Image 33 of 56
The hardest part was stringing that bundle of cables from the front to the back of the RV . . .
Image 34 of 56
. . . so we could also have Hi Def video in the bedroom.
Image 35 of 56
Another project was to build a slide tray for one of our storage bays, so we could get at stuff
Image 36 of 56
We also replaced the old microwave/range hood with a new one. Judy likes it a lot
Image 37 of 56
We were very lucky to get the outside range vent installed. Another half-inch higher would have been disaster
Image 38 of 56
That's grand-nephew Nolan and his early birthday gift - a cat he's named Harold
Image 39 of 56
Harold is a very engaging cat, and also matches the furniture
Image 40 of 56
Lauren and Paul (Nolan's parents) live in another waterfront home a few miles from Jan & Denny's
Image 41 of 56
Judy gets some cuddle time with Harold
Image 42 of 56
Toward the end of September, Jan & Denny came back home . . . and unloaded the boat
Image 43 of 56
Took two dingly loads to get it all to shore, and multiple trips up the bluff to the car
Image 44 of 56
Jan couldn't wait to get back to housework.
Image 45 of 56
Jan also got quite attached to Harold
Image 46 of 56
Our last weekend, Ira & Anna came up from Portland for a couple of days
Image 47 of 56
Jan fed us all with chocolate chip cookies (and other wonderful foods)
Image 48 of 56
Ira and his mom . . .
Image 49 of 56
Good lookin' couple . . .
Image 50 of 56
Denny catches up on the news . . .
Image 51 of 56
Lots of visitors to the feeders, but the male hummingbirds rarely posed for pictures . . .
Image 52 of 56
If we did that, we'd be young too . . .
Image 53 of 56
Some say with a gray wig, Jan looks just like Judy. Who's who?
Image 54 of 56
They are sisters, after all
Image 55 of 56
Figured it out?
Image 56 of 56
Judy's on the right . . . and that's the last slide for this show
