Button, button what a beautiful button!

I realized that the pictures I took of the camera case did not really show how beautiful that button was so I took close up pictures of it this morning. (My camera is awesome in the macro setting)

Knitting projects and new camera

I bought a canon power shot camera A570 last week so we could take pictures of the race as well as holiday pictures.
So now I can send the great grand parents pictures of our grand kids.
Above is the cover I made for the camera so the strap can stick out. It is really thick yarn so it should pad it pretty well. I had finished my Mom's scarf from christmas with the same yarn while we were at the pass last week end so now I can send it to her in Calif.

Deception pass dash Dec 2nd

8 am

The race begins at 9:45

Beautiful sunset at the pass

We were up at Deception pass for the 2nd annual pass dash. We arrived on Friday afternoon so we went for a paddle in Bowman bay till we could park our trailer in our camp site. Then off to get the skin for our skin on frame boats Dave is making. The sunset above was from Friday night.

Saturday morning we woke up to snow on the ground and some rain with wind tossed in there from time to time. In the afternoon a few people arrived for the week end. After they got back from a paddle we all went out to dinner at Deception pass cafe. There was about 20 of us with just one waitress. I have to say she did a great job and got tipped well. We just felt bad for the non paddle people who came in while we were all there as this is a small cafe.

Sunday morning everyone slowly gets up to get ready for the race. We had cinnamon rolls which Cathy popped in cuz she smelled something yummy. Once the race began there was food to get ready for the hungry paddlers. There was a lot of wind on the course that they had to deal with so they needed to be warmed up and fed. By the time the race was over there was concern over the wind so we left as we did not want to get caught in the worse part of the storm coming. We made it home within 3 hours.
