Day of the Dead -and a -Trip to the Coast

 Last Thursday on Alberta St. was a party. Stephanie Brockway above on the right curated the "Day of the Dead" show at Gaurdino Gallery.
 Janet, Steph, Tory, Dayna, Melissa and little Olivia.

 From the street
 The dead danced that night.
 The show will be up till the end of November drop in there is a lot of great art to see.
Beach trip with Suzanne, Debi, and Dayna
 First stop Astoria and a quick visit for coffee, art supplies, and as always the odd junk shop.
 Not so much junk but antiques in the old John Jacob Astor Hotel. The walls and ceiling are missing parts and paint but so wonderful to look at. I would love to go back for a real photo shoot.
 Most of our time was spent doing art in Suzanne's lovely beach house. Dayna and I did get out for a short walk and some goofing around.
 We had a rule to stay in our jammies all day.
 My PJ's are under my clothes.
 Dayna did a wonderful post on the beach trip and Day of the Dead. Visit her blog if you want to see more.
There were so many birds out on the beach I want to return with a long lens.
Today it's gray and cold but I'm thinking how lucky I am to have such friends and fun things to do.

Nice photos, Tory. I especially like the one with the bridge in the background--that has become such a familiar sight. It was so much fun having you guys out at the beach. Will have to keep an eye out for that big orange chair.
ps. thanks for the bean soup and lovely pears.

Ahhh, such fun to relive the great Day of the Dead party AND the beach trip. So much fun, all of it. I'm so grateful you are my wacky friend.
