Washington State Book Signing, Part I

Greetings!  I was in Washington State, home of Rose Hovick, for a Mama Rose’s Turn book signing over the Thanksgiving holiday and let me tell you, it was one of the very best vacations I’ve ever had!  I was hosted by the Museum of the North Beach in Moclips, WA.  One of the residents of the Copalis Beach in the North Beach area, Belle “Betty” Thornton, was Rose Thompson Hovick’s sister, so I had been in touch with Kelly Calhoun and Jane Bennett of the museum for awhile as I researched the book.  Kelly, Jane and Lee Marriott met me in Seattle at King Street Station where Rose Hovick’s father used to work – beginning in 1895!  After they picked me up when I arrived on the Amtrak we went to the Space Needle.  I’m going to have to put only a few photos up here at a time since guess what?  I “only” took 2,625 of them during this fabulous trip!

By the way, did you know that the Space Needle sways when you get up to the top of it?  I didn’t either – but what fun!  And it certainly didn’t stop me from taking photographs, whether the edifice was sashaying around in the wind or not.  I LOVE SEATTLE!  I have to go back soon.
