In Duwamish

I have been in Duwamish for a few days now, waiting for folk to arrive from various parts of the realm. Some travellers have been at the House of Serpents while others were in servitude at the House of Baba Yaga. Mercifully Baba agreed that the spindles could lay idle for a few days and decided that evenn she would take a break and join the gathering in Duwamish. By all accounts the Gypsies are now camped just outside the town.

The Inn at Duwamish is filling and later there will be a potlash dinner supplied by the innkeeper to traditionally mark the arrival of the salmon. Visitors will no doubt be keen to explore the Marina, visit Livia's bookshop and take a bath at the bath-house frequented by the Ferry Women who have wonderful stories to tell.

Two excursions are planned while we are here. One will be a visit to White Owl Island which Fran discovered during her wanderings and another will be to the Isle of Ancestors for those who have not been there yet. If you go to White Owl Island you will find (later today) a special activity and the Isle of Ancestors is still open for visitors.

After a day or two we will be moving out and heading to the Lemurian Abbey where the Gorgons, Baba Yaga, the Amazon Queen and Abbess will be in audience to watch a special performance in the Great Banquet Hall. You may want to dip into Pandora's Box of Costumes for ideas. Everyone is welcome to go on stage and be in the spotlight during this wonderful festival.

We will stay at the Abbey for a few nights and then find our way to Baba Yaga's House.

Wow! You have been a busy girl. I love the drawings. Now I know what Duwamish really looks like.

I have terrible stage fright, but who knows. Maybe Pandora's costumes will inspire me.

To where I am not sure but it is not on this earth me thinks......
Its definetly not on a slow boat to China that I can tell you.

Thank goodness you started sketching, because if not - I don't dare think! How would these images have come to life??? I remember the top figure, he's back again, same job different times.

Thanks everyone. These have been done over about a three month period - since I began drawing. It is great to be back in Duwamish, drawing it through my special glasses. And yes Monika! The same companions are still with me.

I do love your owls, Heather, and your Duwamish views. The owls give the town such a sense of excitement!

The owls have created a sense of excitement haven't they? I am not sure what I think about them flying madly all over the realm but... well they are colourful.
