The rest of winter/early spring activities have centered
around a place called Brindles Market on Camano Island WA, a few miles from our
Stanwood Home. Brindles combines a neat wine shop with a meat and
seafood market, art gallery, and book store which has been hosting local
musicians on most Friday and Saturday evenings. This plus Wed and Sunday
afternoon jams has made for meeting lots of new performers and jamming
with old friends.
