N.  Confluence Project, Cape Dissapointment, WA.  I didn’t even know about the Confluence Projects before stopping at this park.  The Confluence Project “is a collaborative effort of Pacific Northwest tribes, renowned artist Maya Lin, civic groups from Washington and Oregon and other artists, architects and landscape designers.  The project stretches more than 300 miles from where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean, to Clarkston, WA with sites in both Oregon and Washington. Each of its seven sites features an art installation by Ms. Lin that interprets the area’s ecology and history, encouraging the visitor to reflect on how the surroundings have changed over time.” www.confluenceproject.org/about  The boardwalk in the picture is inscribed with text from Lewis and Clark’s journals.  Winter 2012

O. Wow! I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this incredibly long Ipomea. It is an annual too.  NYC, Fall 2012

P.  Inspiring colors at the Seattle Aquarium with my niece. Winter 2012
