The Next Big Adventure

The Next Big Adventure

It’s Time! When I came back here from South Africa 4 years ago, I had no intention of staying here. But one thing did NOT lead to another and so here I still am, in the Pacific Northwest, vowing to never do another winter here. But the Universe works in...
Trip to Whidbey Island Distillery

Trip to Whidbey Island Distillery

Road Trip! Always fun to get out of town and take a ferry ride. Yesterday, the plan was to head over to Whidbey Island, just a short ferry ride away where there is a distillery there that I wanted to visit. Whidbey is far more open and although it feels more rural in...

Movin’ On

When I condense everything that has been going on, really since I came back from Belize, it seems like I must have been really busy and things are just cooking! Well, to begin with, it was a bit hectic, getting the new business (Suki & Deluco Tour Company) up and...

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!...

The Hardware Distillery Company

The Hardware Distillery Company

Heads, Hearts, Tails That sounds like a casino, or at least a card game of some sort! But no, these are terms used in the distilling process which I am starting to get a handle on! Yesterday, a beautiful spring day, Susan and I headed down to Hoodsport on the Hood...
Tiptoe Through the Tulips

Tiptoe Through the Tulips

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Susan and I took the early ferry from Port Townsend to Coupeville on Whidbey Island, then on to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, and we managed to avoid some of the crowds. We had hoped for a sunny day as forecast, but as is the norm up...
