Home again at last...

Well, we’re back from the Pacific Northwest. Nine days away from home…Got in late last night. Parrish got back to Honolulu around 2 a.m., CST. We actually had pleasant flights both to and from, if airline travel can be considered pleasant these days…

We had beautiful weather for our entire trip. Sunny at least part of every day, and a misty rain only on one day. Temps ranged from highs in the low 50’s to highs in the mid 70’s. Got pretty cold at night, though—down into the low 40’s and upper 30’s.

We put 700 miles on the rental car. We spent time in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Purdy, Port Townsend, Anacortes, Friday Harbor, North Bend, Snoqualmie, and Seattle. I took nearly 2,000 photos. We saw the Olympic Mountains, the Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker. We took the ferry to and from San Juan Island. We visited Pike’s Market and Pioneer Square in Seattle. We saw Snoqualmie Falls. We visited a train museum and the diner where they filmed part of the TV show Twin Peaks. We had dinner with friends, breakfast with friends. We stayed at The Tucker House, Salish Lodge, the Crown Plaza, and in a 5th Wheel camper…we stayed somewhere different almost every night. We had great massages at the Salish Lodge. We have no clean clothes left, and mail is covering the dining room table. Woofey and Anna are still annoyed with us. We both have tons of work piled up that all needs to be done yesterday…

Now we need a vacation to recover from our vacation.


I'll post some photos as soon as I have time to upload and process all of them.
