A Day in the Life...

A day in the life of us mobile folks involves flexibility as well as mobility.  When Chris and Beth were heading our way and the Park in Chimacum was full, we just pulled up stakes and met them in Port Townsend, maybe 5 miles away.  We would not miss an opportunity to have our great friends close by.

The Panys have arrived...yay!

Could not resist Chris with his favorite motto
 A day in the life can involve postponing the dishes if another opportunity presents itself, i.e.; Beth suggests a visit to the Naval Undersea Museum.  So we pile into "insert name of CRV"...Beth and Chris name all inanimate objects, I'm thinking "Emily" but she may be the GPS, and we drive over the canal and through the woods to Keyport, at the tip of the Kitsap Peninsula.

But this is not Hunters Point!

I say damn the torpedoes..

 A day in the life almost always involves very good eating.  After a day of sightseeing we stopped at Pedro's Fiesta Jalisco, undoubtedly one of the best Mexican restaurants we've eaten at outside of Mexico.  Chris and I had the pork birria, a mouth-watering and tender slow-braised pork shank in a red chile sauce. Howard's carne asada and Beth's shrimp and chicken combo also got rave reviews.

But there is more in the food category.

No sniveling here

The best salmon, salad, veggies & wine!

A day in the life really needs to include some exercise and we all, with the exception of Chris who needs no exercise, managed some long walks along the bike trail or down to Fort Townsend State Park.  Howard and I are sticking pretty close to our low carb diet and Beth is doing fantastic on Jenny Craig.  A few pounds have been shed, and a few more to go.  Just a day in the life.....
