The past three days have been spent partaking of the community Thanksgiving meal, riding ferries, watching movies, and coughing and wiping noses. And this time Papa can't blame the kids (who he calls walking petri dishes). Grammie's cough started the day before they arrived.
One of our favorite activities to do is to ride the inter-island ferry, Evergreen State, through the heart of the San Juans and back to Friday Harbor. It's free. We get to see the ferry docks at all four of the major islands. We get to observe wildlife. We get to do puzzles. It is a LOT larger than Viking Star, or the hotel room, so the kids can run their sillies out. And they can go outside, or stay warm and dry inside. AND the three kids have the attention of three adults, in this case.
