We went to Whidbey Island for the wedding of Joana, Rachel's friend from grade school in Sacramento, to Tyson. The wedding was on an alpaca farm:

The alpacas are ready for the wedding:

So are the chickens:

Here are some photos from Donovan Motorcar. Three photos are of the "storage barn" In there were numerous Jaguars in various states of completion, early Lotus Esprit, '79 Trans AM, '68 GTO, Aston Martin DB7, Aston Martin Lagonda, Pre-war Bentley, Mercedes SL 230, Triumph TR2, Ford F100, Triumph Spitfire, Austin Healey 3000, and much more. There is one photo of a Jaguar XK120 in the main shop. The road photo was taken on RT. 8 north of North Adams. Very winding, very fast road. We had a lot of fun with the Mustang and Nissan 350z on this road as we were away from the rest of the group at this point and were able to drive flat out.

Traffic Jam getting out of Hemmings in Bennington. I followed this Mustang for the next 60 miles. These photos of the Alfa 8C are of the rear brakes which are bigger than the front brakes of my EVO.

Went with the Saratoga Auto Museum on the "Fall Road Tour". Started at The museum and took backroads to Hemmings in Bennington, VT. Then to Donovan Motorcar in Lenox, MA for lunch. Kate and I went together in the EVO. Thanks to Paul and Cyndy for watching the kids all day. Kate and I were the only people on the tour with children under 20 years old. The group consisted of the following cars.
Austin Healey 3000
Chrysler Crossfire
Ford Mustang GT
Nissan 350Z
Honda S2000
Jaguar XJS
Mazda Miata
'57 Ford Thunderbird
Ferrari 575 Maranello

'67 Chevy Corvette
Saab SPG

More from Whidbey Island, Washington:

We went for a walk on the beach, and found sand dollars. We also found a live one, but didn't take a picture of it.

The name of this bay is the Useless Bay. I guess it is not as good as the Necessary Dam Road.

There are lighthouses in Washington, too.

Building batteries around lighthouses may be a bicoastal theme, although here no one made off with the artillery. This one was made somewhere:

Black River Stages Sept 17,18 and 19.
I did setup and was the timer for the flying finish on the Tidd Stage.
The #1 Evo was the best team, driver, car and only Evo.
Since I was alone timing the finish I could not get race pics.

Ferry ride to Whidbey Island. It looks like we're in for some typical sunny weather for the Seattle area.

Tugboat round-up this weekend in Waterford. Elliot and I stopped there today.

Mechanicville 9-10-10

Cameron will be starting violin lessons next week. We rented this violin today. There will be a winter and a spring concert. It is strongly recommended that Grandparents are in attendance.

Here are some photos from the weekend and one from the first day of school. We went to a farm/museum in Carmel that had cows, turkeys, horses, chickens, goats, old farm equipment and antigue tractors. Elliot showed his cousin Lily how to use an old fashioned water pump. We also went back to the Danbury railroad museum where Oliver was able to drive the diesel switcher.

Oliver before and after.
