A very quick but entirely entertaining visit!
Little TC was kind of silly
when we were trying to find her a pose for me to paint:
TC posing with a Minion was something that thrilled HER,
but not me ... (nothing against Minions, understand).
She tried posing with my husband's carved birds!
Top bird is an American Dipper and of course below
are male and female Rufous Hummingbirds
but, I didn't think it was quite working ...
We walked down to Sandy Beach on Douglas Island
& found a cool old-old-old rusted chain - one of the many remnants of the old Treadwell Gold Mine.
(that link has TONS of info, grab a cup of tea ...)
There were some very old pilings to explore.
The mainland and the city of Juneau is in the background. TC was so curious about the old pumphouse, but it's not that easy to climb onto ... and I think it is probably frowned upon. (The link takes you to info about its restoration.)
This is the best we could do.
Tomorrow, more portrait-posing photos
and the real painting!
(well, a picture of it ...)
