I really shouldn't be posting right now, but I'm burned out from backing. In a mere 15 hours, Becky and I will be in line to board the Alaska State Ferry. Today had been a feverish finale to months of preparations. More about that a little later.
The big news is that on Saturday, Becky graduated from the Huxley School of the Environment at Western Washington University!! Hooray!!! To celebrate a gang of friends and family went out to Western's Viqueen Lodge on Sinclair Island for the weekend. In fact, just this morning we were on Sinclair. Water taxis sure do make the San Juans seem small!!
We had a wonderful weekend of relaxing, exploring, tidepooling and catching up.
A big THANK YOU to Tristan and Julia (who took this photo) for making it out for this special weekend, and for the pancakes.
Alright, time to get back to packing. Food boxes are all wrapped up, dry bags are stuffed, the boats have even been fully loaded for a dry run. Amazingly, everything fits!! Even the iPod!
