Such a lovely place! 'tis a shame they have to shove all the flags in one's face, but nowhere's perfect!

I like the flags, Who :)))

I also like the crazy reflections in the window of the pavilion, and the tinsel on the lamp-posts, dear Suzi. Is this a Christmas photo? It looks too warm ;)

Greetings from a suddenly thawing UK, Amelia

In my experience of small-town Washington State, they have more flags there than they do teeth. :/

And they go to the supermarket in their pyjamas.

Hello, Who, and happy 2011 (O: ..... I didn't mean it as a Christmas photo, dear Amelia, but it is Christmas tinsel. There are scores more flags all along the boardwalk - I like the reflection too, and the bicycles. This was a lucky shot from the van and strictly for GE - a tourist area. Shouldn't be too long before the trains run along here again. The tracks have been closed since before I moved here (2007) for much needed repairs. Thanks and hugs, dear friend (O:

Well, Suz - there's no doubting which country this photo belongs to, with all those US flags a-flyin...!!

Just as well no blimp had to make an emergency crash-landing - there'd be an almighty Bang, wouldn't there...?? ((o;

But in spite of the teasing, its a nice photo and very interesting too.

It would be fun to arrive in a train and I hope they get going very soon! Maybe 2011 will be the Year of the Train, for Coos Bay's Waterfront Pavilion?

Warmest hugs

Still waiting for the train, dear Hazel - the tracks are very rusty. I look forward to hearing the train whistles blow. So glad you like the picture. It's a good area to visit if one wishes to see lots of people from all over, though not today - a gale is blowing strong all over the area. A large fir tree branch blew down into the yard last night nearly hitting the house - no damage except for cracking one planter's edge, though it came inches from knocking out my entire bonsai collection. I feel very fortunate this morning. Happy hugs (O:
