Work on the movie sets is accelerating as filming is due to start in two weeks. Crews have started on the Diner set, which is being built in front of the old gas station across from the Victorian Inn. The tarps that had covered the Majestic for a few days were removed and extensive work has been done on the facade. The town hall is starting to look like a town hall instead of a big box. The facade for the town hall is on the back side so from the street it doesn’t look like much yet. I’ll have pictures of the other two set pieces later this week. Tonight we’re going to a potluck dinner that the construction crew is putting on. There is one more interior set that is being built at the fairgrounds, which is where the potluck is. The set is in a different building though so I don’t know if it will be available to the public. Taking the camera just in case.
I was a bit late in adding shots for the last few days. But I just got my slide scanner installed so I put up a couple of pictures I recently took of a sunset in Loleta. The shots were taken from a bridge that spans the Eel River. The bridge is about 8 feet wide, but you can drive over it onto an island that has a nature preserve. I’m just glad no one was trying to use it while I was taking pictures.
