Maya Lin and Sidney

Back in 2011 R and I went to the first of the Maya Lin “Confluence” pieces at Cape Disappointment.  Last week on Sidney day we visited the second piece we have seen in Vancouver, WA…the “Land Bridge” and we liked it just as much.

The walk up the Land Bridge piece begins at the historic apple tree…supposedly planted in the 1820’s and in bloom last Monday…or what is left of it is in bloom…

and up we went into the Maya Lin piece conjoining the history of the native people with the history of settlement and development…a tall order and gracefully done…

  1. fantastic shots of sydney. he’s a charmer & your photos catch him enjoying all the ‘new’ experiences of this new-to-him world. a lucky child to have grandparents who take him to such exotic (& familiar) places.

  2. Love every last photo & detail of Sidney the Sensational! The two fellows ‘Singing in the Rain’ is so fine. Maya Lin’s art work is pretty interesting as well.
