Busy, Busy, Busy....

I thought Al had made another post since we arrived in Portland area, but I see it is still in the 'Draft' folder....I will give him a reminder.

In the meantime, we have been busy since travelling south from our winter home in Friday Harbor.  Travel went without a hitch.  We are grateful to our new friends Art and Rae, who helped us by loading our bags in their truck for the ferry ride, gave us a tour of their boat Baylee Rae at Anacortes, and gave us a ride to the car rental office.  We made good time driving the rest of the way.

Al says he likes 'getting a new car' every six months or so.  (Rental)

We have ridden on a Christmas Ship, attended a double birthday party, visited grandkids, and had dinner with a son.  Today we will do some errands (spend MORE money) and ride another Christmas Ship in the last parade of this season.  Tomorrow will be a day for visiting friends.

Micah (Petty Officer Spangler) will arrive on leave from the Navy tonight, so I hope to get a one-on-one visit sometime soon, but certainly will see him on Christmas morning at Lindsay's house.

Already I am feeling like I am running out of time to do all and see all that I wish.

We had an issue with our phone, and Al got that worked out yesterday morning, after an hour with customer service.  Seems cell phones, or OURS anyway, don't like the 1- .  Glad we got that resolved!
