Happy July 4th!

I have a thing for old pick up trucks so I snapped this one today while on the Suquamish Indian Reservation.

As an observer of people and someone who has a love for Native American culture I treasure anytime I get to go to a reservation. There is a calmness, a carefree attitude there yet the respect for all living things shines through.

We visited this place, Rain Bear Studio

The lady that owns the place was very colorful and interesting. She was not Native American but Canadian. And her name was Rainey Daze, I kid you not! I enjoyed visiting her studio and promised to come back and visit again when I get back into making jewelry again.
I had a good day today. I hope you did too!

Yesterday was a wonderful day. very noisy, but very nice. I'm so glad you are getting to see some of the sights in WA.

I'm glad you had a good day. I've never been to a reservation unless you count the one in Mississippe where the company I worked for had a plant. And we stayed in the casino because there was no other hotel in town.
