Today was an only in Ferndale day. First, there was a Memorial Day parade down Main Street, followed by a ceremony at the Ferndale Cemetery. The ceremony was quite moving with nice speeches, and it was nice to see Memorial Day celebrated by something other than shopping. The cemetery was very pretty with many rhododendrons in full bloom, and many of the graves were decorated with flowers and flags.
Following the ceremony the first of the Kinetic race vehicles started making their way into Ferndale. Lori and I watched them stream down Main Street from about 12:30 to 3:30, then we went over to the Slippery, Slimey Slope to watch the last few. This area was worse than I had heard, and I had heard it was pretty challenging. It would have been tough in my ATV, much less something like a human powered 10 foot tall horse. I’ll have more pictures from the race the rest of the week.
The wonderful day was capped with another beautiful sunset.
