Have a look at all the articles and let me know what you think - and also what themes you like the best.

Do you recognize the flags flying on La Vignette Island this week? Located in Wanderers Channel in the Admiralty Islands, the one of the right is a giant COVID Mask. Handmade from a sheet, complete with folds and ear loops. A reminder that together we can beat this! (Cathy Van Sickle is pictured on the left ready to salute the Captains of the tour boats that pass by several times a day. Also we salute Peter van Sickle who rebuilt the bridge after two high-water summer's damage).
