HOLIDAY AT CRESCENT SEA STACK




This week we take a brief departure from our Shrew Khan graphic novel to join Mrs. Trowbridge as she and her family travel north from Huckleberry Hollow for their summer holiday at Crescent Sea Stack. The natural beauty and gentle sea breeze made Crescent Sea Stack a favorite holiday destination for the Trowbridge family. This is one of my favorites among Mrs. Trowbridge's paintings.


I will always remember the day that I visited the very same sea stack that Mrs. T visited so long ago. It's located on the north Olympic Peninsula in Washington State,  just a few minutes west of Port Angeles. Follow Highway 101 west from Port Angeles, then turn off onto Highway 112. Turn right on Camp Hayden Road to Crescent Bay on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. You will immediately recognize the beautiful sea stack in the bay.

AIR ASSAULT ON GILOH



In our last episode, Keno is led by Emperor Nang from his room in the palace infirmary to a high tower in the Imperial Palace where he is shown the amazing sight that you see above.  A small spark of an idea from a bonfire somewhere in Shomu led to a revolutionary new airborne battle strategy that would win many campaigns for Emperor Nang's army for seasons to come. Our story continues...
