Originally we were going to take a Kenmore Air seaplane to Friday Harbor but decided to take a little road trip in Greg's new car via the ferry.
We were laughing Thursday night as we were watching Grey's Anatomy because the big disaster was a ferry mishap. We looked over at one another and laughed. Great. The next day we would be on a ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor!
We stayed at Friday Harbor House. We had the coveted room #36 (Thank you Renee'!) This room is a corner room on the 3rd floor looking out over the marina. It was fabulous! If you ever get to stay there, ask for room 36!
Here are my finished Tabi Socks enjoying our room with a view!
Friday afternoon we came back to the room, lit the fireplace, sat our butts down and just relaxed. Greg read and I knitted. I finished the Tabi Socks and made some good progress on my Swallowtail Shawl. We even took a nap! How about that? We had a nice romantic dinner that night and came back to our room to enjoy the view, watching the ferries.
Greg's brother Mike is married to my friend Renee'. Renee' introduced me to Greg. Mike and Renee' flew up on Saturday morning to join us forthis little getaway(officially birthday presents to the Bang boys).
A funny fact about the 4 Bang boys. All were born from the end of January to the beginning of March. Evie, the matriarch, did not want to be big and pregnant during the summer. So she planned, very accurately, each pregnancy. That is Evie. The planner and perfectionist!
Back to our weekend....We had a wonderful Saturday - visiting Roche Harbor and the Wescott Bay Sculpture Park. We were blessed with a sunny, beautiful day. We did a little hike from the Hotel de Haro to the McMillan mausoleum.
Of course I had to visit the yarn store, Island Wools, in Friday Harbor and ended up buying some yarn. I know. You are not surprised. Right now I'm too lazy to take photos and post them.
A side note: I've been busy spinning. I have homework for class on Wednesday and I am behind schedule! I have to have two full bobbins so that I can learn to ply them. I probably have a bobbin and a half. I'm pleased with how my yarn is developing.
I need to run off to bed. 4:45 am comes very quickly!
