Taking a break
The last couple of years have been quite busy for me as we’ve transitioned away from the art festivals that were the staple of my business for over 30 years & now rely strictly on my customers finding me on the internet. I felt a little time off was needed, so I took my CFO, CMO & tech support team (also known as my family) to several places that have been on my bucket list…..the Olympic Peninsula & Alaska. Because of the great support I receive from Nikki who handles everything financial, Alexis, my daughter in law, who redesigned my website & convinced me that utilizing social media (including writing a blog) was vital in people from all over finding my work and my son Nick who fixes my tech mistakes & on occasion lends a little muscle when I have a heavy table to load in a crate, I am able to pursue my passion of creating driftwood furniture for my great customers.I told Nick & Alexis what I had in mind & they did all the research & planning and came up with a detailed itinerary for a very special 10 days. If they ever decide to give up their jobs as attorneys, they would make great travel planners.
Upon arriving in Seattle we drove to the Lake Crescent Lodge located on a beautiful glacier carved lake in the Olympic National Park. Needless to say, with my love for photography I captured an abundance of memories that I brought back.
The giant western cedar trees were abundant & the deer unafraid.
These are more images than I normally will use in one of my posts, but with the beauty of this place it was hard to leave any out (which I did). By clicking on any one picture it will become full screen. Next….Rialto & Ruby Beach plus the snow covered Hurricane Ridge.
Love these photos and can’t wait to see more!
Truly beautiful! And, I noticed a couple of nice-looking pieces of driftwood, as well. Loved the photos.
