Neckties as a way to dress up a cabin window--a bit of much-needed color on a grey day in the Pacific Northwest. Vashon Island is untethered to the mainland. Seattle and Tacoma are near, as the raven flies--but the lack of bridges keeps this community decidedly IN Puget Sound, instead of becoming a suburban part of the cities that ring this arm of the sea. Ferries are the only way to go. My wife and I had gone to visit friends who live on the island...(Thanks, Daniel, for happening to provide the bright decor!)
