Mini Day Trip to Ballard

Mini Day Trip to Ballard

It was a beautiful, brisk fall day and as I drove through Port Gamble, with its avenue of maple trees, I made a note to myself (which I had better write down today) to go back in a week when the trees will be “in full color.” As they are already turning, I...
Another Big Adventure

Another Big Adventure

It’s amazing how fast the time is swishing by! Last week I took the plunge and bought my ticket to South Africa. I have been watching airfares on google flights and they had dropped so I grabbed it. First I fly to Burbank for a few days with Ryan, then on...
Picking Up Speed

Picking Up Speed

Falling into Place It’s pretty exciting the way things are starting to really pick up speed leading to my “get the hell out of here” moment! My plans are solidifying – a bit – as I set my sights on a mid-November departure. It looks like...

Everyone Loves the Rhody Parade

Everyone Loves the Rhody Parade

Small-town America! What fun the Rhody Parade was this weekend. It’s years since I made the effort to go and it was so worth it, despite the drizzle! The Rhododendron Festival has been a huge event in Port Townsend for close to (if not this year) eighty years!...
Mum and Son Weekend

Mum and Son Weekend

Mum and Son Weekend I felt very spoiled this weekend! Ryan came up from California just for the two days, but we managed to pack in a lot of fun! He is never one to sit around the house, twiddling his thumbs. One of the reasons for the visit (besides me!) was to drive...
