    Maggie, thanks for the San Juan Islands pix. I've been going to to Orcas Isl. since 1947.
    I spent many summers of my youth in the San Juans, my family has had property on
    Orcas Isl. since 1901. My sister is a full timer near East Sound and I've still have 2 acres
    near North Beach that was my great grand ma's home in the 20's,30's & 40's. I have a
    life time of good memories from that area.

    ...................Jack

    Jack - you can just go back and delete the second one.

    Here's one with local (to me) interest. Land Rovers are made here in Solihull. I'll scout around for some more old ones.

    another:

    Experimental tractor - never got past the prototype stage - I never knew about this one.

    And one last one featuring Winston Churchill.

    I'll make that the last as they're not very hot-roddy.

    Mart.

    This looks like the motel used in the movie Officer and a Gigolo with Richard Gere

  14. The motel they used was in Port Townsend, WA - it is still there.
     
  15. We love the San Juans, I learned how to walk on Orcas. My grandparents honeymooned there, then rented a house on Lake Washington for $15 a month.
     
  16. I'm pretty sure, they built the second span alongside of it (not sure when). There is a huge debate going on about replacing it (and I'm sure who's going to pay for it).
