Stealing away

Beloved spouse had another parade to play in, so we went up to Bellingham the day before. We took the Mukilteo ferry to Whidbey Island, had a sweet hike at Ebey's Landing, a nice cup of chowder, and eventually found the motel up in B-Ham. We went back to the Fairhaven district and happened upon a fine little cafe in which to have a cool sandwich and beverage; bagel, cream cheese, smoked salmon with capers and tiny slices of sweet red onion, side garnish of tomato slices and sprouts filled me up. Sprouts are everywhere up there, it's kind of a neo-hippy kind of place. We walked by a restaurant that had a four man combo playing, and went in to hydrate and listen.
The parade on Sunday was very good, not too long, and another "band widow" and I played waterboys for the troops as they marched along. They sounded terrific. Perfect sunny day, cool breezes, and scenic drives to and from along Chuckanut Drive rounded out a delightful short weekend away.

That does sound like a perfectly fine time.
