Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Port Ludlow "Festival By The Bay".

I had a great time yesterday at the Festival by the Bay. This is Port Ludlow's annual community celebration. Walked four miles, saw a Coast Guard helicopter rescue at sea, saw dancing girls, saw four bands, saw an art show, booths selling crafts, saw a fireworks show, and was visited by the Wrock Family from Woodenville. Grandson Matt, wife Janelle, and girls Winter and Holly. Did not get to bed until midnight.

Long busy day for the Old Prunepicker. It started early with a pancake breakfast in Chimacum.

The Coast Guard rescue helicopter did a good job.

This Lady's vehicle only has two wheels.

Beautiful dancing girls.

The Dukes of Dabob, my favorite dixieland band.

For a large part of the show I was joined by Kevin Crawford, a good friend from the Liars Club at the Escapee Park in Chimacum.

The Delta Rays. A great band. Did some good cajun along with rock and roll.

View of Olympic Mountains from the Festival.

At last! Fireworks.
