Note: My Adriatic Coast blog posts are still in the works. It has been a slow process in between our busy craft show season; however, more posts will be on the way soon!
A few months ago, Bruce and I were sitting in our booth at the summer Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair, pouring over some photographs during the late afternoon, and the crowd had left for the day. American Queen Steamboat Company had announced their photography contest in the Steamboat Society of America’s monthly newsletter, The Paddlewheeler, and I was trying to decide which photos to enter. We each had ranked my final selections and agreed that this photo was our favorite:
After entering the contest, I forgot all about it. Today, we are sitting here in our booth once again for the fall Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair, and I checked my e-mail in between customers. Surprise! The latest edition of The Paddlewheeler was in my inbox. I clicked on the link, scrolled down to see the winners– all much better than my entry. Oh well; I lost. I scrolled down further to read the remainder of the newsletter, and I saw the second place entries, and there it was! I won second place! We are going on another cruise aboard the American Duchess, so I will get to use my credit then. Fun!
Well, the band ended their set, and the customers are cruising the aisles once again, so it’s back to work!
Stay tuned for another Adriatic Coast post soon!
