Summer Folk Festival

Mighty fine time was had by all.

All windows are installed - no weather seal nor trim yet - that will come.
Kinda windy tonight (for them weather boneheads).

The door is a week or so out and cutting the opening in the concrete is slated for Tuesday.

I's Back

Black Ball Ferry deigned to let us come home this morning. We may consider "Reserving" a spot on the ferry next trip.
Though the RV was comfy it's always a treat to get home to the cold house, light the furnace and have your familiar BATHROOM!
Loved every minute!
