Memorial Day in the San Juans

I think the tradition has been going on for almost 30 years. Every Memorial Day weekend, my extended family gets together on family property in the far corner of the San Juan Islands to do a spring cleaning work party.

Saturday we set to work, and I was assigned to fence duty for my first time. Our crew walked the fence line to check for damage, and repair any sections of barbed wire that need it.
Some sections of the fence needed a lot of work
I also got to hang with a lot of awesome relatives, including sweet cousins, nieces, and nephews.
