I never get tired of this view each morning here on Whidbey Island......that is probably why I think of this place as my second home. There is something about a long view with water and mountains in the background that just soothes my soul.
We had plans for Sunday, but Bob injured his arm Saturday evening while we were visiting his friends, Joe and Debby, on the west side of the island. He leaned against something he was expecting to support him, and it didn't.......he didn't quite fall, but when he grabbed for something to stop his fall he wrenched his right arm. Since he would not be able to hold a fishing pole, the planned salmon fishing outing had to be scrapped. Instead we spent the day relaxing outside on their deck, and watching NFL pre-season football.
As you know we roll with the Jello (as in "our plans are written in Jello") so we just went with the flow....TLE spent a lot of time reading, and later in the day I got out my Kindle and read one of the two books I had downloaded for this weekend....a Ben Bridges Western, while I watched the Vikings and 49ers game with Bob.
There really is not much else to write about, because that is exactly what we did.......of course I have to mention that Karen made a great lunch that we ate out on the deck, followed up by another amazing dinner of baked, and BBQ'd chicken, salad and potatoes also eaten out on the deck. Other than that we just relaxed, and talked.
I wish I had more for you, but sometimes it is really hard to make nothing sound like something.....this will have to go down as one of the shortest blog entries I have written in some time. We'll see what the Jello has in mind for Monday......oh, by the way, we will not be heading home on Monday as planned. After some discussion Sunday about how bad summer vacation traffic is on Monday's and Friday's, and having already experienced Friday's traffic jam on I-5, we have decided to depart for Coeur d'Alene on Tuesday morning instead. So, while the Jello sometimes takes away, it also gives back sometimes. We will be heading south on Tuesday to take the Clinton Ferry back to the mainland.
Thanks for stopping by!
