Villa Pictoral History
Bellingham's undiscovered northern beaches are prime locations for driftwood structures. "The Villa" was one of the most elaborate and had become a destination for many Bellingham beach explorers until the folks from the Cliffside neighborhood chainsawed everything resembling art on the beach. Peace through destruction, not.

If you look for something hard enough, you will find it. That's the easy part. The difficulty lies in what comes next?


They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;
They pursued it with forks and hope;
They threatened it's life with a railroad share;
They charmed it with smiles and soap.

From Lewis Carrol's, The Hunting of the Snark

patron: "Hey, let's have some JAZZ music!"
sax: "What kind of fish does he want?"
drums: "Give him some tea. He wants tea."
bass: "How about we phase him and THEN take the oreos?"
piano: "I heard about that tea."
"Oh 'tis the scurby waddle which perbs the
slippant vumlop, or say the clig mullert."
