I was tagged by Indie over at The Bitten Apple. The challenge is this:
  • Post the 6th picture in your 6th folder.
  • Post that picture on your blog along with the story that goes with it.
  • Tag 6 other people that you know or you don't and challenge them to do the same. Let them know in your blog or by email that they've been tagged.
To be honest, the sixth folder in my picture folder actually belonged to Mark. I decided to pass it up because I really didn't know the story behind the 6th picture - it was a motorcycle fender. No bike, just the fender. Who the hell knows what it fit. Actually, I'm sure he does and I'm also sure it sold on e-bay and he has a perfectly good story behind it. But, that's his story to tell.

I skipped past Mark's and on to my next which was a folder of the trip he and I took to the east coast in 2005. We flew into Virginia with the intent of tracking some family history and gravesites. We had the absolute best fish and chips dinner in Hampton, Virginia - the biggest slab of flounder I've ever had laid over a pile of fries. As we drove the Chesapeake waterfront after dinner, the tide was coming up and was actually over the curb and in the parking places for a half block past the docks. I couldn't resist testing my flotation and it would appear I can actually walk on water. I'm glad this game didn't require the eighth picture or Avis would see our rental car DRIVING on water.

So now, as is required by the game, I will tag a few fellow bloggers that I don't know well:
  1. Joe at Eureka POZ hoping for a stellar shot of Ruby.
  2. Humboldt Turtle at Humboldtia - a good chance to get to know one of the newer bloggers
  3. Bob Flame Ranger who has the worst job ever - he has to go to the beach. Ugh!
  4. Jen over at House of Sand and Fog - she has the guts to ride the waves.
  5. Let's see what CPR can find over at Eureka Standard
  6. Another fairly new blogger, Sohumborn, with fascinating SoHum insight.
Check out their blogs if you haven't yet. See what they do with this challenge.

Hey thanks! That was a fun little game to play. I couldn't wait to see what was my sixth sixth. Then I had a great little trip down memory lane. A lovely way to start my day.

Beachcomber, I'm so glad you took me up on it!

What an interesting picture. Does the tide come up that far there on a regular basis? The residents must have to wear mudboots (a.k.a. "wellies) all the time.

Your description of the seafood made me seriously hungry. I'm going to have to make fish for dinner thanks to you!
