As summer Lopezians, we echo the call. You would be warmly welcomed. It's a great group.

Too far for me right now. I would like to, but it just won't work out.

Thanks for the pressure, though!


Cheers,
Steve

A New Beginning with Another Ride on a Ferry

Last Thursday I said a bunch of goodbyes—didn’t lose it until the last one late in the day. Pam and I had moved onto our sailboat nearly 24 years ago in Blaine and there are a lot of friends there.

Friday, Brissy and I hooked up Island Girl and made the short trip to Deception Pass State Park. Haven’t camped there since sometime in the early 80’s when I did it by bicycle and it is still just as stunning. The bridges were in part a Civilian Conservation Corps work project during the Depression.
Of course it was windy and rainy just as soon as we found our campsite, but that was OK.

On Sunday while waiting for the Port Townsend ferry one of the crewmembers asked about the trailer. That worked out well as we were first on the ferry with Bris looking out to make sure nobody got too close.

We were headed for a little county campground just south of Port Townsend called Oak Bay where I’ll be the host for the season. The campground was also a CCC project during the Depression. There are also a few campsites on the spit in the background in that one picture. Lots of birds, a view of Mt. Ranier on a clear day and a pretty fantastic place for my kayak.



The flamingos have landed and the anchor is down, so we’re all set. I’ll be here all season but should be able to get away to the Olympic Mountains a few times. Feel good about it and think it should help me as I continue through the grieving process and start to put my life back together again. Things are OK. Hopefully we’ll see a few Airstreams in here this summer.

cheers,
steve

What a beautiful place to spend the summer. Maybe the change will do you good. Wish it wasn't so far away or we'd come up and see you. I have a soft spot for white cats too.

Great! The right place, the right job (if I may be bold).

Maybe I can show up at your cg, Steve! Dying to meet you and the Briss now. Sometimes fresh surroundings can really help. Maybe Pink and I can show up at the same time, although I realize that's not a prospect for the faint of heart...

Thanks! Should be just about the right summer for me.

You and Pink can come up anytime, zlee! I just checked tonight and I don't think there is a site you can't back into.

cheers,
steve

Absolutely not. It is a big deal. I know that I will continue to embarass myself backing up, only when there is a crowd handy.

Haha! I don't mind, it gives me something to be humble about, because you know, there's so little, otherwise...
