Last weekend we went to visit friends who live in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. (No, it wasn't warm there either!) We walked onto the ferry, and our friends met us at the landing. Even though the weather was grey and a bit rainy, it was a nice trip.
We saw this heron stalking something.
Lots of cormorants were nesting on the pilings by the ferry dock. Every time I see them with their outspread wings I feel certain this bird inspired the totem poles.
Rainer and Susan can watch whales cavoting right from their living room window!
With views like this one, I don't think I'd ever get anything done if I lived here!
When we weren't admiring the scenery, we were playing with Max, the newest family member. Their daughter-in-law rescued him from an LA freeway onramp!
He's quite a cat!
Before heading back home, I went with Susan to the Lavender Festival and bought a small plant for our yard. We've been pretty busy since we got home, preparing to head for the Midwest soon, but right now the sun's out, so we're going to walk around Green Lake. Bye!
