Port Townsend Adventure

Happy First Day of 2006! We rounded out the New Year with a visit to Port Townsend, and our friends on the other side of the Sound. We spent an evening and overnight with our friends, the New Dharma Bums, fellow transplants from Santa Cruz. They are such a sparkling, brilliant, and passionate couple. Their multiple talents and interests make them the best fun to be with, and we laughed and chatted for hours, ate a superb dinner cooked by RD, and caught up on the months since we've seen each other. Even Zuma was a pretty good houseguest, did not chase Bonsai, their cat, and behaved like an ideal pet!

On Saturday morning we went into PT and met our friend Shane, and Sequim artists Gregg and Jacqui of Natura Designs for brunch at Sweet Laurette's - YUMMY! I am always on the hunt for the perfect Huevos Rancheros, and they had it! Others were equally pleased with their omelettes, etc. A great visit! Here is a snapshot of Gregg with his kitty, Zabi, meeting Daniella with Zuma. The pets were unfazed!
When we got back to Whidbey Island mid-afternoon yesterday, we stopped at Greenbank Farm to take a walk. They have a set of wonderful trails that go up to the ridge of the island, where you see water in both directions. Here are some snapshots from that walk.
Zuma wears a little read parka when she is up here - it's chilly!
While we were walking, a flock of Canada Geese appeared on the horizon and then
they flew directly overhead.

Wonderful geese photo! Don't you just love seeing them in the sky, in that fantastic formation?

We loved your company, right down to the last minute of it. Pure delight.

Nice new look on your blog here, Ms. Jardin.

Thanks RD. I've been missing the camera these last few weeks, so it was nice to have it in hand again yesterday, especially when the geese flew over. Hope you two had a great first day of 2006. We had a power outage for a couple of hours, but are back in bid-ness again!
