Islander Deb Treise has a friend in England named Tracey whose birthday is today. For a fun way to wish her a happy birthday, Deb made a banner to hold in front of the Roche Harbor Webcam and told Tracey to watch for it at the right time. Above is a screenshot from 11:00 AM when Debbie held up the banner. Here’s more in her words:
I’m going to try to send a birthday greeting to a galfriend in England on the 26th at 11:00 am from the Roche Harbor cam video. I thought maybe you might come up with some kinda story about reaching out to our neighbors, no matter how far away using this modern technology that I still can’t even grasp myself.
Tracey lives in Durham, England; near Newcastle upon Tyne. She’s on her family sheep farm (3rd generation) which she runs with her guy, Ed. They have Dobbins, 600+ sheep, a dog named Poppy, two boys Michael stationed in Afghanistan & Adam. I’ve gotten to know her through a game site, we talk almost everyday. Anyway, it’s her birthday this Wednesday & as much as we’d like to meet each other, I thought that this would be a fun thing to do, using Roche Harbor’s web cam, I hope to wish her a happy birthday. Weather permitting… wish me luck.
