Day Eight in the Northwest: Sucia and San Juan

15 08 2010

Thursday we continued our island hopping adventures. First stop: Sucia, a destination island for boating and camping enthusiasts from all over the world.

Bellingham Marina in the morning sunlight.

Grace, Harper Sparrow, and Curtis, on board and ready to go.

Beauty . . .

as far . . .

as the eye . . .

can see.

Shady trails

Towering trees

Hiking Sparrow

Sweet Sparrow feet

Mt. Baker

Creation . . .

declares . . .

the glory . . .

of its Creator.

Loved this little golden boat.

Quaint downtown

End of a gorgeous day.

I’m posting this from the Seattle airport as we await our flight back to Texas. It’s hard to leave the lush and lovely (and COOL) northwest with all its various Sparrows, but — wow — what a great time this has been! Still to come, days nine and ten, including shots of kids having fun at a water park, a stroll through Capitol Hill, and views from the 17th floor of a downtown Seattle building.

Until then.

I am so jealous. That’s all I can say.

Thanks, Duane. Also, jealousy is a sin. You should repent.
