Cousins

Comment 1 Standard

This past month we were so excited to have Greg’s cousin and son come visit us from Milwaukee.  We had a blast doing all the touristy things us locals don’t get around to doing.

We started out at Deception Pass and were blessed with a beautiful day (which this summer has been few and far between)

Making the kids sit pretty in too many pictures warrants a crazy picture

We then headed to Friday Harbor.  Someplace I had never been in all the years living around here.  I loved it!  We headed to the American Camp first to explore. 

We headed down a trail to Grandma’s Cove.  It was my favorite place.  Almost like being at the “real” ocean.  You know…not the sound.  That would probably be the one thing I do miss about California.  The real ocean.

Grandma’s Cove had it just about right.  Never mind the mountains you would see across the horizon.  If you closed your eyes it had the right sound, the right smell and the right breeze.

Some of the local wildlife even came out to give us a show.

The ferry schedule restricted us from being able to explore the island too much more but I would love to go to the English camp next time.  It was a great weekend visiting with family and making memories.

One thought on “Cousins

  1. Hi, Hi, Hi!!! WOW (again! – It seems I am always amazed at the beauty, joy, and wonders of your family and the country!!!)
    What great pictures and special smiles! How wonderful to share with family the joys of the country – I miss it so much. I bet they don’t have scenery like that in Milaukee and what a treat to see the Red Fox. I know you were happy to have a sunny day – I noticed you were all wearing jackets, not needed here – today will be cool, only 103 degrees! 😦 I miss WA! Some day I will return for good, in the mean time, everyone enjoy each other and the wonders of God’s Creation!
    I miss you all and think of you more than you will ever know!
    Sis! (Hugs and Kisses to everyone!!!)
