Dozens of neighbors past and present turned out to help Emily Riddell celebrate her birthday on September 23. Emily also brought 15 blue grass picker friends, who provided lots of lively entertainment throughout the afternoon on Issaquah Dock.

After 27 years, Emily and Stuart are selling their floating home, and plan to move to Manhattan beach to be nearer their children and grandchildren.

Emily is an accomplished photographer, whose work can be seen on her website. For several years, she’s been producing calendars with her color photos of floating homes, and now she’s taking orders for the 2018 edition, which will be her last. If you’d like a copy, contact Emily  and indicate whether you’d like tide charts included in your calendar(s) or not.

Stuart is the author of the salty sailing novel “A Soldier’s Wind,” which he published in his mid-eighties.  The book is available directly from Stuart, or at Amazon.com.

The Riddells have been very active members of the floating homes community, and will be missed by many.
