The party,I made it on time, it was grand, the weather held and the food was amazing!
On the tables, hand blown old glass floats that Amy has found along the way.
Sometime these old floats can still be found , usually on the peninsula, and when a person finds one it is indeed their lucky day!
This is the same house where the Christmas party was, modern. sleek, glass and steel!
A far cry from their old Victorian home across form the armory "castle".
see the line of concrete shoring up the yard, just over the edge is a drop off, I mean STEEP, so steep the if one falls off of the yard it is better just o roll all the way down to the road below and walk back up the road about a mile or so to the house. But, must say, the view is amazing!
The party was for three, the girls and their families and friends, Boys playing basketball, girls playing badminton and some sort of throwing game I m not familiar with.
I zoomed my camera as zoomy as it could go to take a shot of the train trestle far below.
See the tunnel? We used to get a rush going through it not knowing if or when the train would be coming, We were idiots, and stoned, probably. We lived on the edge of the muddy side of the bay in off the grid houses, cabins, huts, not much more than shelters.
Pretty sure we could out fox a train in the dark tunnel...why are we still alive, I don't know!
Anyway , they do not want to spoil the view by putting up a fence so if you stumble and tip over the edge, well, that is just the price one must pay.
They are so lucky to have their own madrone tree , a well established healthy old growth!
The prettiest tree in town!!
This is that cool kind of moss growing on top of a stone pineapple, looks like a guy going bald but just not quite there.
The garden is dramatic, not fussy but full of statement!
Boulders for steps, big, that sort of thing.
Cool little touches, a small sort of rustic alter thing, a Buddha hang out .
And a large glass ball next to a stone.
Amy has done all of the work! She is stronger than a team of horses, that woman!
