The remains of Harriet's cabin on the Sand Spit. I never knew what her name was actually. This little cabin was perched on pilings on the edge of the breakwater, across from the entrance to Shelter Bay. There was an old woman who lived there -- she was friendly, but she never seemed to walk to talk with anybody. And she always had her underwear neatly pinned on the clothes line outside.
The story is becoming a tale of Nearly Normal Jimmy's long journey from the Sand Spit to the Frog Hospital to buy some beer. In the last installment, Jimmy and Hitch spoke with Robert Sund underneath the Rainbow Bridge. The story continues when they meet Joy Sykafoos and go to a wedding in Pioneer Park -- that becomes very interesting.
What does this have to do with Harriet and her cabin? I don't know, but I'll figure it out.
