(Camelia's in the yard)
(Mt Rainier in all it's glory)
(Inside Curt's temporary abode)
So I landing on time in Sea-Tac and after a night at Curt's home away from home with skyline views of Tacoma from his bedroom we took the road south east to get to Bend Oregon where Emily and Travis leave. It is a beautiful town build around the bending Deschutes river. It is one of those charming town with turn of the century mini and not so mini houses well preserved with studios on their backyards. There is a park following the water. Just a breath of freshair. The temperature is very pleasant during the days with freezing nights. Very healthy it seems.
So we went around town for a little shopping, a little eating, a little beer tasting (Deschutes Brewery Co. ), a little movie going at McMenamins "the Blind Side" (good one by the way), a little hiking at the Smith's Rock (outside of Redmond, OR) where rock climbers take over it's multiple routes overlooking the crooked river down below. (monkey head aove) A really beautiful area. The light was reflecting the colors of the season onto the surface of the chilly water. What a sight.
So a nice break from the few stressful past weeks.
Peace at last.

Alaska, Under the Sea, Garden, Collections, All Dressed Up, Heavy Metal, Up Town, Women, Fantasy. The awards were given at the end of the show by Janie Odgers who masterminded this whole Alaska Fiver Festival idea along Gail Ramsey and Debbie Boyce.
One of the emcee "Mee Mee" was an over 6 foot tall with tall shoes Flamboyant Drag Queen working as a bartender for Mad Myrna's bar next door to the Sheraton. One of the most fun bar in town by the way.
So now on with my bad pictures. We could not use flashes understandably and the models were very up beat. I took mini movies of certain pieces but can't figure out how to make it to turn a quarter of the way to make it standing up right. (any ideas???).

Linda multitasking: listening to the teacher as she eats a piece of brownie. It takes talent to focus.
Carol Taylor is another teacher having workshops at the AFF and her class also added colors to their palette. It was with pleasure that we realized that we could purchase some gorgeous yarn and thread in her classroom.
