MECHANICAL  FREAK  SHOW

San Juan Island, Washington

Wednesday, July 14, 2004

What in God's name are these machines? I stumbled upon them in the San Juan Islands. They must have been used for something positively evil. Surely they were something created in the fertile mind of movie director Tim Burton, built, then discarded because they were just too sinister for even his movies.

While I prefer my story best, the more mundane explanation is they were once used to generate electricity for the resort, at least that's what I was told. But maybe the storyteller was hiding behind this all too believable explanation. Maybe there was more to it that he was willing or able to tell. Perhaps the machines were listening to our conversation, waiting patiently with rust baited breath for just the right opportunity. And what opportunity that was I shuddered to think.
