Great nephew Finn was heartbroken when Wally had to leave. He and Finn made a real "connection" in the brief 4 hrs. we were there! Kindred spirits me thinks!
We are having atypical weather for the end of May/beginning of June. We are usually wet this time of year, but for the past 2 weeks we've had sun and more sun and now heat! The flowers are loving it and so are we. Sunday Wally and I hiked up Chuckanut Ridge to catch the view. It's a 1,oo0' climb mostly straight up! But here's the reward, panoramic views of the Skagit Valley, the San Juan Islands and the Olympics. We could even see Mt. Ranier, but it was a bit hazy so it wouldn't show up in the pic.
We thought it would be fun to go from one extreme to the other, so we hiked back down the ridge and on down to Larrabee State Park to sit by the sea and soak up the sun!
Summer....you gotta love it!
