There She Goes: Jesse Gardner, Treading Water in the Dark There She Goes

    • Places & Travel

Today we travel with Jesse Gardner to Vashon Island, Washington, where, en route to look for whales, she discovers an unwieldy dream on the side of the road.


Jesse is a writer and photographer. She co-founded Write, a workshop for writers on Orcas Island. She's been a contributor to the Huffington Post, and a Guest Columnist at the New Tribune. Her photographs have twice earned an "editors pick" on National Geographic's Your Shot and she's served as the Official Photographer of the Doe Bay and Timber! Music Festivals. Jesse is creating a feature-length screenplay based on the life of her 8x (do you say Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great) great-grandmother.
