The astute reader will have noticed that I removed the word “Seattle” from today’s title. (Good job, astute reader. Pat yourself on the back. Okay, now pat your head and rub your stomach. Now do the hokey pokey. Are you video taping this? I sure hope so.) “Seattle” is missing, because we spent Wednesday through Friday in Bellingham, where Curtis’ parents live. Curtis’ dad, Ed, owns a Boston Whaler, a sturdy speed boat that zipped us to Chuckanut Bay on Wednesday to visit Dot Island, a small uninhabited bird sanctuary. What’s so special about Dot Island, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, you astute little cutie. In March of 2007, Curtis proposed to Grace on one of its beaches. (You can read that romantic story here.) This was their first visit back since that day. Wow. What a beautiful place! Here’s a smattering of the almost-500 photos I took.
I didn’t have wireless while we were in Bellingham, so I’m a few days behind chronicling our adventures. Up next, Day Eight: Sucia and San Juan. Stay tuned for another sunny day on the islands!
