There isn’t too much going on in Aberdeen, WA but it has a wonderful hidden gem: The Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop. It is absolutely stuffed with amazing memorabilia from all of the Star Wars films. Sarah and I were both a bit overwhelmed when we first stepped in to the shop. Every nook and cranny has something in it! There’s TVs playing the films and documentaries all around the shop and there’s even a little one playing the Star Wars Holiday Special in the back corner :)
It was really fun to see some of the toys that I remembered playing with as a kid. The AT-AT walker that I played with a lot is now worth $300!
Here’s some pics I snapped of the shop. Definitely check it out if you find yourself in Aberdeen someday!
The mobile team had our second meetup of the year in Anavyssos, Greece last week. It was one of my favorite team meetups so far. We rented a villa that had a ton of rooms as well as a bunch of fun stuff to do including a giant pool and bikes to ride around on. It was really hot but we managed OK. The Mobile Team is up to 12 now and is a great group to work and hang out with. My favorite part of the trip was when we took a day trip to Athens and a walk up to the Acropolis. Second favorite was sailing in the Mediterranean! Check out the pics:

We’re on a boat!
We came for the FREE Wi-Fi. And lunch.
Apparently this boat is 1.5 million euros.
Made in the shade.
On Mars Hill!
Here’s some shots I have taken in Venice with my iPhone over the past 3 days:

They don’t use the original train building anymore and put a lovely tropical forest in its place.
There’s even a load of turtles hanging out there:
