Annette and Dwayne Majcher came down for "Junk from My Trunk" that we had never been to before, but Annette read about it and it sounded like we should check it out. Good call.
This annual event is basically a high end antique and yard sale held at a beautiful old Victorian style house called Foxwood, just south of Newport, Washington - a short 15 minute drive from our place. It will be on our calendar for next year, too.
|Annette and I want to come back and sample the High Tea they serve in the afternoon|
|Birdhouses made from cowboy boots were just some of the unique items for sale|
|The vendor selling fruits and vegetables also tried to get Dwayne to buy the captain's hat. All he needed then was Tenille.|
|Annette was recovering from foot surgery but was a great sport getting pushed around the grounds in a wheelchair. Fortunately, it didn't slow her down from getting some great deals.|
|Roger and Dwayne had to, of course, check out the old cars and trailers on display|
|Sonny Parker is a fabulous auctioneer who makes the crowd laugh so much, they don't mind parting with their money.|
|You know it's a north Idaho auction when a box of ammo (item #37) is up for bid|
I love sunsets and think I've taken some pretty good shots of them over the years, but none to me, compare to the sunset this week. The trailer became bright as day and when I looked out, saw the sky was a brilliant orange. I grabbed my camera and headed down to the dock. In five minutes a storm blew in and the colors turned grey, but oh, what a glorious five minutes it was.
I didn't use filters to get these colors -- nature got it right.
|The town of Priest River is across the river|
|The east side of the river was bluish-grey|
|The colors changed from west to east|
