Pandemic: Road Trip Week 6

Brian has spent the weekend working on the 2nd bedroom re-hab which is looking fantastic. He has been cutting, trimming, sanding and painting. It’s awesome watching him work. I’ve tried to be helpful but the more I help it seems to cause him a backslide to re-do what I did.

Today, Wednesday, we were to be be joining Mark, Kelly, Rumi, Teo on a island hopping boating excursion. But, dangerous boating conditions have changed our plans. The pictures below capture Kelly on their boat Sunday afternoon in Washington and Brent, Dani, Mary, Mark and Samantha on their boat in Maine on the same day– 3,331 miles apart.

Brian finished the bedroom renovation on Monday. Tuesday Sandy and I drove the Chuckanut scenic road up to Bellingham for lunch. It was the first day that we did not see one of the grandkids since we arrived on July 4. Wednesday night Kerry, Sienna and Seba spent the night with us at the cabin. Kerry brought chilli and corn bread. Sienna brought blueberry muffins and cookies. Thursday Kelly, Mark, Rumi amd Teo arrived by boat. They are on a boat vacation traveling around the San Juan Islands. So, they were close enough to drop by on the west shore for roasted shrimp and roasted asparagus. Friday we head east on Hyway 20 for a beautiful three hour ride to Mazama. We plan to stay there until Wednesday morning before heading on to Idaho.

Because of the pandemic this is the first time visiting this area when did not visit the Pelican Book Store in Anacortes and my favorite restaurants i.e., Mary Ann’s Kitchen, Dad’s Diner, A’Town Bistro and Anthony’s. In fact, while we ate fantastic meals made by Sandy, Kelly and Kerry we did not eat any meals at restaurants all month.

  1. Great post, Dad! Looks like great family times. We miss you all. Enjoy the rest of the pandemic road trip… and safe travels home!

    We will be leaving ‘Bama today… Ella spent the first night in her dorm last night with her roomies. Goodbyes to Ella & Olivia will be around noon today… then a long drive home.

    We plan to visit Evan @ Mizzou in a couple weeks.

    They grow up fast… don’t they? C
