Away

In Washington State, specifically Pt. Townsend....

I took a ferry across the Sound to get to Bainbridge Island....all of the mountains were "out" here...an unusual and incredible sight to see the water surrounded by snow capped mountains...harbor seals playing next to the ferry and the air crisp and cold.
I couldn't stay inside the ferry...I just stood out there amazed at the feeling of freedom I get on the water and the sense that there is so much nature NYC leaves behind.

For now I'll be enjoying warm company and dogs and walks on wooded paths...Last night's Sunset and full moon rising with the Olympic Mountains clearly seen was an overwhelming and beautiful experience.








I started this trip with my dearest Becky in LA at her beautiful cozy house....









Next is Seattle, to see Charlie, Alexis, Laura, Tom, Am and Rob....

There are dances to be made at home.

Thank goodness. I might not get there otherwise.

I miss you, Darlin', but am delighted you're having such a wonderful time. That ferry ride is amazing, isn't it. And you got all the mountains out? That's pretty exceptional, especially for January, if I remember correctly. Isn't Mt. Rainier amazing? It always looks like a movie set to me, especially since it just seems to disappear so much of the time.
