Since I inadvertently destroyed the original decal with Acetone ( ooopsy) I ordered another one from the same company, in Oregon. If you ever need a car sticker/decal try Carstickers.com, they are great! I’ve actually got another one, a little larger than this with a white background as a spare. I like this one as just the graphics stick to the surface. You peel off the backing and after it is set in place, the translucent front part peels off and you are left with just the graphic part. Looks less like a decal and more like an actual painted surface-perhaps?
The countdown begins: Launch date in four days!
The red line is the proposed flight plan of the Mothership. Departure is 2 Aug. 2016 @ 1000 hrs. ‘Proposed’ plan subject to change, weather issues, etc. We are hoping to bring Seattle weather along with us or maybe we could use some cloaking device to encapsulate us in a more moderate climate?
The 12 St. Bridge is a gathering spot for crabbers, their traps being held by colorful ropes. Or maybe these are ‘Love Ropes’, as in Love locks, that residents use to express some romantic notion?
Spotted along Space Road 101 north of Tillamook, another space traveler?
Tile mural from Planet Seaside. Not to be confused with Trout Fishing in America*.

The beings in Planet Seaside seem to indulge in odd activities. An example of a few here.
Festively decorated house spotted on Planet Seaside.
Spotted in Planet Seaside. Not sure why someone would put a sand dollar in a wood carving, but there you are….Maybe it is a mini ufo?
Speaking of which…. I inadvertently destroyed my Mothership decal that was on the stern of the craft. I was doing some cleaning with acetone and my hand slipped totally melting the decal. Not a show stopper: I ordered a larger decal, same design, and it should be here before we leave port on Aug. 2nd.
Till next time….

Till next time, safe voyages!
Here is an image from our maiden voyage to Seaside, OR. I had hoped to have time to post while we were there, but there was only wi-fi available in the laundromat, not a place conducive to breathing let alone writing or photo-editing. Also, we ran out of data on our phone plan. I quickly added another gigabyte, but that too was used up before I could post something from my iPad.
Anyway, I have a lot of photos to go through in the coming days and will be posting some of them as I progress. A few issues came up during the 4 days, but no mission-stoppers. Back in Seattle prepping for the long voyage in August.
Till next time…….
