It feels good to have a day off on Sundays! We have a good friend of the family visiting with us for 6 weeks and we are having fun with him. We went to church then visited my
sister and her family for a little bit and they gave us some clams. They looked
so good that my husband took the kids and went to dig more because of the
minus tides we are having. The clams are everywhere! Big ones or small, they
are abundant here. The dogs were fascinated by these strange creatures.
After that we drove up to Blue Lake reservoir where the town's water comes from.
If you see True bottled water in your grocery store, Blue Lake is where it comes
from. The road was just reopened after 2 avalanches this last winter and spring.
You can see how deep it was across the whole road and it is still snow underneath the debris that it drug down the hill with it. This little truck gives you an idea of the size of the avalanche.
We saw the 2 bears in their enclosure and then went over to Whale Park. The
challenge was to climb up the whale tail and guess who succeeded? The climb
down to the water wasn't bad and the views are wonderful but the climb back up
caused a little leg burning! Ignore that young man in the middle of the 2nd photo--it wasn't
THAT hard (yes Jane, that's your son)
We drove around one of the prettier neighborhoods looking at people's boats.
Not a bad little skiff, huh? LOL
Hopefully the weather will continue to improve and we can really get out and enjoy the outdoors. I am looking forward to net dipping salmon after the 4th of July and possibly visiting the bird sanctuary out on Puffin Island.
