The End is Near for the Fun Forest

An original attraction of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, the Fun Forest Amusement Park, located in the Seattle Center, is in the process of shutting down. Closed in observance of Christmas Day, 2009, the facility was empty and forlorn.

A Visit to Wacky Nut Farm

Liis has 14 years of professional dressage and eventing experience and has trained riders for national exams to become coaches in Canada. As a result, she wanted to visit Wacky Nut Farm, an equestrienne center on Bainbridge Island that opened in August, 2009.

On November 25, 2009, Liis’ friend Brigetta Delgado picked us up, accompanied by her dog Chulo. We all took the ferry to Winslow and drove to Wacky Nut Farm.
