St. Sophia Day & Scenery

This morning the girls and I met for breakfast then went to St. sophia's for their Greek Festival. We hadn't gone before and wanted to see what it was about. The above picture was taken from the back of the temple. They were playing music that made me think we might see a belly dancer but we didn't. :( LOL
Basically there were tents set up with all sorts of greek foods and other products. Most very high priced I thought but interesting to look at just the same.
The Pastries were tempting but I am not fond of Baklava at all so didn't get carried away. Besides we were still full up from breakfast.
When I look at these pictures I can see that someone did a LOT of baking. I'm glad it wasn't me!
This line was longer but I couldn't get it all in the picture. They were waiting for some kind of hot food. I think called gyros. Is that a word? I don't know what it is but it must be pretty good for people to wait that long!
Of course I couldn't leave without getting a picture of this lovely rose. It wasn't fragrant but sure is pretty.
The next few shots were taken on the day of Jesse's memorial. I love the salt water and thought I'd share a few of my favorites. The one above was taken at the Stommish grounds at Gooseberry Point Lummi Reservation, here in Whatcom County. This is where the Memorial was held. Several hundred people attended and I took a lot of pictures. It was a beautiful day and I am so glad I could be there for my sweet friend and her family. I want to thank you all again for your prayers.See Mt. Baker peeking over the lower mountains and the town of Bellingham? If you enlarge these you can see more detail.

Bellingham Bay and the mountains.
Mt. Baker is such a gorgeous view and see the Twin Sisters to her right?
This one was taken with telephoto lens so you can see the town better. I like how the two seagulls flew into the picture for me. This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the ones above and I don't have a clue who the lady is. I love flowers and one day did a google search on unusual flowers. I was sure surprised when I saw this. I read that some of this type stink really bad. I wouldn't want a flower like that. This one probably didn't or she wouldn't be cheek to cheek with it unless her sniffer is out of order!

I just got my computer out of the shop yesterday. It was running really slow and eventually kept freezing up. The nice technician told me it had four virus's.
I have protection so I can't imagine how that hapened.
Be sure to update your protection!!

What state in Ferndale was the photo taken of the old, dilapidated house?
