2 More from Gibsons and Duane's FB  
I am posting this fish creation called, "Look Who's in Town, Just Hanging Around" from the Gibsons Landing Salmon Festival 2009, which is cute:

I am also posting this pic of Duane from the same day:

Description says this:

Duane at the Gibsons Landing Salmon Festival 2009. Thank you Linda Williams for taking this photo! Notice the American Flag still up even though this is Canada. I think that might also be a Washington State flag, the green one, next to it, while the British Columbia flag looks like a setting sun and the British Flag combined together. A film set prop left by the movie crew over the weekend shooting break.

And he's right. It is a Washington state flag next to the US flag. So I guess that answers the question of where the film is set. But, based on Sam's clothing, it does appear the Red Sox are still a significant part of the story.

You can check out the fish in more up-close pics on his FB. The text bubbles are sweet.

That fish is adorable! I hope Zac saw it :)

And I'm not sure I understand the logic behind changing where the story takes place, but hopefully we'll get an explanation later. :)

I think the reason is practicality. It is a lot easier and cheaper to just move the story to somewhere outside of Seattle which looks like Vancouver, than it is to make Vancouver look like Marblehead.

But though the decision was motivated more by necessity than artistry, I don't think it will affect the story negatively really. The story's location (aside from the Red Sox aspect) is not that relevant to the plot. Sure Marblehead has a lot of charm and would have been nice to use, but the story could go anywhere there is sailing and a cemetery without losing the power of its message. So I think it will be fine.

And as someone who loves the Pacific Northwest, I can say I'm quite pleased to have some PNW eye candy as the backdrop behind Zefron.

That makes sense. I wasn't sure how much the location was important to the book, hence my initial reserve. But believe me, I won't be the one complaining about BC scenery being all over this movie. :D

I don't know how you guys pick your sports teams, if it's just the one where you're from? Is it weird to have an avid Red Sox fan in Washington?

I think for kids to have a different team is a little weird.

Adults may like a different team than the one where they are presently located because of being a transplant. Like, I do not live in Seattle anymore, but the Mariners (sucky though they may be now) are still my team.

Though my friend who grew up in Seattle now lives in North Carolina and likes the Yankess. So who knows? LOL.

lol speaking as one from Washington, we're not terribly loyal, mostly because our teams usually suck or have sucked at one point in history. Its not rare at all to find avid fans of another team.
