A two-week limit forced us kicking and screaming out of our water-front Pt. Hudson Marina location in downtown Port Townsend. And since we were unable to get a ferry to Whidbey Island on Sunday due to the crowded weekend schedule, we decided to return to the Escapee's park in Chimacum for a couple of days so we could arrange for a visit with long-time friends, Dick and Hazel, whom we first met 14 years ago near Puerto Escondido, on the southwest coast of Mexico, and now reside (when they're not traveling) in Bellingham, WA.
Hazel just had knee replacement surgery and is doing lots of strengthening exercises to prepare for their mid-October, month long trip to Europe, cruising the rivers of Austria, Germany, France and Switzerland. Due to macular degeneration she is considered legally blind and also had a pacemaker installed a few years back to correct some heart-beat abnormalities....and did I mention both she and Dick are a very young 85, and absolutely refuse to stop.....period!
