I live in a small fishing town called Ilwaco in the state of Washington, USA. We are the last town before the Columbia River empties into the Pacific Ocean.
My avatar is Bigfoot (or Sasquatch), or rather a full-sized wood carving of what the local artist believes a Bigfoot looks like. The area in the USA I am from, called the Pacific Northwest, is known for its many Bigfoot sightings. Some say Bigfoot does not exist. I say he does because I like to believe there is some wonder left in this world of ours.
I have lived in both big cities and small towns, but I find that I feel most comfortable in smaller towns.
My hobbies are sending and receiving postcards, of course, seeing new places, reading, exploring in the woods, and foraging for wild mushrooms.
I was born and raised in this part of the USA, though I did have the opportunity to spend a couple months in Barcelona when I was a student and time in Panama when I was a soldier in the United States Army.
While stationed in Panama I had the opportunity to travel around the Caribbean Sea and to a few different countries in Central America.
I really enjoy learning about new places and would hope in the future I can travel more. Sometimes I just pick a destination for a driving
trip, with my only real limits being time and money. I find that local, small heritage museums and Chambers of Commerce, as well as just talking to the locals, are good ways to learn about a new place.
My kids are all adults now and doing well. I am very proud of them. I have a five-years-old dog named Bruno who loves walks and car rides and snacks.
Thank you in advance for your postcard. I look forward to hearing from you :-) I don't care what kind of postcard you send, but I am a fan of signatures because every signature is unique. Feel free to sign your name in your own language.
