Where I stayed
Rob and Jen's Beach Cabin, Hood Canal
Niece Jenifer and nephew-in-law Rob have a terrific beach cabin that they were gracious enough to offer us on the Hood Canal where we walked out at low tide and made pigs of ourselves on the oysters, more oysters than I have ever seen. They were also kind enough to give us a closet in their home for storage of the memorabilia we are unwilling to part with (that which could fit in a Ford Focus and a Ford Taurus. Lord, we looked like the Clampetts driving out west.) This is the final stateside visit before we leave for Indonesia.
We also spent time with Sisters Terry and Cathy, and nephew and niece in law John and Christy (trick-or-treating with Jen, Chad. and John's kids), and Wandering-man appreciates the sisters in particular for their help and hospitality. Terry put us up the first and last nights at her beautiful new home in Snohomish, while Cathy pretty much put her life on hold the whole time we were here to help us with the drudgery of the practical errands one must attend to before chucking it all.
Sold the Taurus, have a dealer selling the Focus on consignment, set up banking for the 10 month SEA adventure. The mundane tasks have been many, and Wandering-man declares them DONE. Fly out this afternoon SEA-LAX-BKK-Bali.
I may upload pics later, although the real Wandering has yet to begin.
Next post- Bali- much more interesting. Stay tuned.
