Still in Chimacum

Yes we are still here having a great time. My two sons came over last Sunday and we introduced them to Marty and Howie & Norah,now they know that yes we do have friends that live this lifestyle also. The oldest is now following Marty's blog. We went down to Port Townsend and we walked around the town and marina had a great visit and early dinner and drove them back to Kingston to catch the ferry back to Seattle. Saturday Kathy and I took a three hour boat tour ride to Protection Island. There was a Naturalist on board that explained the history and wild life around the island Kathy picked up a few new birds and also got the two she really wanted to see the Tufted Puffin and the Harlequin Duck. There were over 30 eagles and close to 500 seals and a few sea lions. We felt that we got our money's worth. This Sunday we took the ferry over to the guys side and they treated us to the locks on lake Washington where the salmon were just starting their run we saw a few nice one's. The locks were busy with all the weekend boat traffic we were then treated to lunch by Green lake and then toured a winery (Chateau Ste Michelle)Which bottles one of Kathy's favorite wines. The grounds were beautiful. Anyway they took us back to Edmonds and we caught the Ferry back to Kingston. Will see them over on our side this Sunday The ferry transit systems works extremely well and runs on schedule and are a real treat to ride for us desert dwellers The weather has been great so far and looks good for this week anyway "fans" until next post. Safe Travels
