Enjoyed a nice, leisurely day trip out to the Olympic Peninsula today with snorklet, to visit hopeyhopey and smilinglee. They live out in the middle of nowhere, even though it's only seven and a half miles from the highway. Visited with them, helped recycle some nursery pots and flats, had a pleasant lunch, petted the horses and dogs and meandered home, stopping at the Lost Mountain Winery for some samples of yummy red wines.
Had excellent ferry karma both ways. Traffic on the Seattle side was horrid, with the Aurora Bridge closed for seismic retrofitting (perhaps appropriate, as Mt. St. Helen's rumbles away in southwestern Washington), so we backtracked and stopped at Than Brothers for delicious pho for dinner. Tasty, nutricious and cheap. Yum.
Now, time to go curl up on the sofa with the kitties.
