29 July 2013 : Watering

So Melinda, Christine, Bernard & I spent the weekend in Friday Harbor, a city on San Juan Island, a little ways north of Seattle. "Watering"If you aren’t aware, Seattle sits on the Puget Sound and to the west and north are several islands. San Juan Island is one of them, and Friday Harbor is a popular destination spot. In July, it’s typically wonderful by all definitions. Weather, views, food, etc.

So we went up on Friday, traveling by boat. And we came back yesterday by float plane. It’s quite an experience, taking off on the water at Friday Harbor where you feel all relaxed and touristy. And then less than 40 minutes later you touch down on Lake Union in downtown Seattle. It’s hard to believe you were on the island less than an hour earlier.

This photo is seconds before our “landing” on Lake Union. Although “landing” seems like the wrong word. I suggest “watering” to describe the touching down of a float plane.

Who’s with me?
