Ode to Luke's trailer

We have loved traveling to Astoria, OR during the last week to capture the final stages of construction on Luke's upright bass trailer. It's a beautiful coastal town with cute shops, delicious bakeries and a much slower speed than Portland. Watching Luke build and work through design issues, while maintaining the most positive attitude we have experienced in a long time, has also helped us work through some of the issues and difficulties that we have come upon in the past week.

Here is Luke in the epoxy tent in Astoria, OR:
