Bolivar revisited

Crystal Beach water slide

I finally went to Bolivar yesterday.

I hadn’t planned it. I went out for coffee and wound up on the ferry. There was no wait, and schools of dolphins met the ferry coming and going. It was magical in its way — cool, gray, serious, but surprisingly beautiful — like a Eugene O’Neill play.

I’ll leave you to ponder the pictures yourselves. We’ll talk tomorrow after it’s set in. Here’s my image gallery…

    Those pics make me feel very insignificant, just a speck in the big scheme. Wow!

    Hey Alice!
    Good for you giving up plastic. But the BEST is to take your own canvas bags. I’ve been doing that and now when I forget to get them out of my trunk, I make myself walk back out to the car to get them. Love the blog!

    You asked in your blog about Boliver, “where did everything go?” Well, for starters, I think a whole lot of it went to Smith Point, including one of the 2 people who escaped Boliver at the last minute. My brother-in-law and the sheriff found him alive and took care of him! The Nashes have 2 family homes in Smith Point. My sisters-in-law had a permanent home, and the other one is more a fishing place. I’ll send pictures. There were roofs from at least 3 houses in the yard. And Shannon, my brother in law, is using wood that floated on to the property to try to rebuild the house. It was a one story house on blocks that has been there since the 1930’s!
    I’ll send pics as soon as I figure out the best way to send them.
