Scan Fair in Astoria, Oregon


Sunday was Father's Day. My husband was born in Denmark. He didn't become a U.S. Citizen until his senior year in high school. So, he wanted to go to the Scan Fair and, like I said, it was Father's Day. So off to Astoria we went.

David Strand from Silverton, Oregon was whittling wooden shoes for the crowd. He let me take a turn.


Then we moved on to find recycled pop cans made into garden art. These airplanes and roadrunners were made out of used soda cans. How cool is that?...

Cool! I have one of those soda can airplaces made by an ancient old man. I'd love to learn how to do it...another hobby to add to my list.

So your husband is from Denmark? I feel oddly related, because as you might know, the Virgin Islands were owned by Denmark for several hundred years before the U. S. bought them in 1917.

It was a fun time girls.

Bish: Denmark used to own most of Sweden too, back in the days when the Vikings ran the world :)

Whittling shoes looks like fun! Cute picture. Love the soda can art, too.

We took my husband to see Star Trek :)
