Dad Back Home

Down the hill from the Pioneer Burial Park in Oak Harbor, my father grew up in this house. A house that used to be there, that is.

dad and his bed

My father found peices of his old bed in the woods by the cemetery where his house used to be. The bed he said he slept on while growing up in Oak Harbor was an army cot.
