Do you have to go far to see the bore tide?
And a skateboard ramp? You guys are much more hip and current there than I would have ex-pected!
Yep.  Mostly replica; if I recall the parts were too deteriorated.  It's behind the museum.
Bore tide is way up the bay.
The skate park is under construction, after a petition by a young student.

Yay!  Can't wait to see them.  I'm sure your crew will have great fun with them.  And you can add cycling to the Doll-ympics wink

"You saw my new skateboard the other day.  Well guess what.  It turns out I'm a natural talent.  I did a few practice runs on the porch..."

Despite the occasional mistake with that sort of form, Red could not only go to the Olympics, she could medal! Nice to see her helping the less confident Samantha on the board.

Coming from an Australian, that’s serious praise! They know their skateboarding!

I know some of Alliecat’s photography tricks, and I still can’t figure out how she got these shots, so I’m going to have to go with, “they’re not trick shots, it’s all real!” Impressive stunts, and impressive photography!

The last pics where Red is teaching Sam are so cute! Heart 2
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

I suppose a magician can't reveal her secrets, but yeah, I, too, would love to know how you managed those shots! Wow!

Those skateboarding shots are truly amazing.

Thank you, all yay
Of course they're real.  Red is naturally talented.

Ah, you guys... I guess I have to admit to my dolly tribe, a photoshop cheat on these... tripod and thread  blush

Those are such a sweet set. I hope Samantha and Red can keep in touch. I love that Samantha repaid Red for the skateboard lesson with a surfing one. The rock is a lovely present. I look forward to seeing Red in next year's PTFCo calendar. Will Red's next host post her pics somewhere that we can continue to follow her adventures?

Lovely! Now I feel challenged to dip Red's toe in the Mississippi when she comes to my place.

Other hosts may post here, but you can also follow Red's exploits at the Dal House Forum!

And so, Red's adventures at PTFCo come to a close.


-------------------------------------------

Dear Red,

It's been a privilege to have you visit, and a lot of fun.  You were a lovely guest and I enjoyed showing you around.  We didn't watch much news while you were here, but you may have gathered that right now the human world is a mess.  Lucky little plastic people, you guys are still having fun.  Thank you for providing a brief escape from the darkness.  Travel dolls are a lovely little spark for the imagination, and you provided that.
I wish you lots of fun on the rest of your journey, and many new friends.  Make sure you hang onto that teddy.  Be careful on the skateboard.  The crew here will miss you and we send you on your way with a heap of good wishes and much aloha.

--Alliecat & the PTFCo crew

That almost brought a tear to my eye. I hope Samantha finds someone else to hang out with and be as close with as she was with Red. I hope Red enjoys the next phase of her adventure with her new host. It was very nice of Samantha and the pirates to give her some stuff to take with her. I don't think anyone else can party like the PTFCo.

I was going to respond to the penultimate post but I got distracted reading about "wishing stones" which led to articles about chert and quartz and chalcedony and real estate in Maine, and now I see there's an even bigger Farewell Post featuring a pirate party so I'm going to have to comment later... meaning earlier tomorrow, because it's too late at night to be coherent right now, to which the ill-advised PM I may or may not have just sent will attest.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Loved all the shots of her skateboarding - she's very clever! (and so are you with the magic of thread & tripods). I particularly enjoyed the "out-takes" of her crashing in her tricks.

And the party looks amaxing - they sure do know how to enjoy themselves! As well as the suffering the next day...

Its been a lovely few weeks seeing all over the island with Red, I've really enjoyed her adventures.

They’re not suffering… They’re just buzzed and chillin... Mostly LOL

Thanks everyone for following Red’s adventures. It was fun, and a great mental health break. Much needed!
(Anybody wants a little skateboard, $2 plus postage, if the store still has some. Unfortunately the postage would probably be a lot more.)
