Julie Andrews said that when they were filming that opening sequence, she kept getting knocked to the ground by the helicopter draft. And the director would say" O.K., let's get another take !"

love to see your cane cars !!

You need to paint a little Julie Andrews on one of those mountains!

 

We have been crafting our own cane cars, andt that is also on hold until we can get last bits to finish locally.  I'll have to get some photos up later.

 I have to be careful not to " step on" any scenes, that is to obscure the views we are trying so hard to create.
