Break Time from Heaven, Just Believe book deadlines

Heaven, Just Believe is in the final stage before it goes to the book production stage. While I wait to hear from Tate Publishing I decided to take a little break and have some fun.

My husband, Gene, and I decided to join the 3rd annual Kingston Slug-Hunt. You may ask yourself what is a Slug-Hunt? Ceramic slugs decorated by local artists and students are hidden around town for children and adults to find. If you don’t find one, no problem, you can join the silent auction and bid on your favorite but be aware you are bidding against call-in bids from other states. Yes, the Slug Hunt is that famous!

It was a beautiful sunny day and off we went on our adventure. I found one in front of Main Street Ale House restaurant. Artist Lori Barrett created Love the Grape slug. We stopped by Main Street Ale House for a delicious lunch and a photo opportunity. We love this slug and have added a candle and put it in our entryway to greet our guests.

Another one I found was La Di Da by artist Jessica McGreal.  Anchor Chiropractic sponsored this slug. Its place of honor will be our guest room.

The last slug I found we are calling the mystery slug because we are to receive it later. We can hardly wait to welcome our new slug to our home. Yes, these slugs are prized possessions especially in Kingston, Washington.  

I must say I loved and enjoyed the slug Gene found. It was a chocolate one which of course we have no photo of,  because we were too eager to taste and enjoy.

It was a fun day when 250 slugs invaded Kingston. Profits from this annual event benefit the Front Street Gallery Art Scholarship Fund and the Kingston Chamber of Commerce. Our thanks to Front Street Gallery, Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Yacht Club, sponsors, and all the many volunteers. We had a great day and can’t wait until next year when the slugs once again invade Kingston.
