F found a new way to carry sticks
Camping + no driving = one, two, three days of proper walks.
A long weekend camping at Deception Pass State Park was a chance to really get to know the place after last years day trip.
Drift wood made for excellent den building
and Cranberry Lake was a great place to float around and cool off on.
Some eagle spotting…
…and cloud gazing on North Beach,
with just-in-time sunsets from West beach.
A chance to wind down with some coloring…
…and stone sculpture.
As is becoming tradition, May in the garden.
An early start on Saturday for a hike up Mail Box Peak
Pretty spectacular views of Mt. Rainier to the SE, but the haze meant downtown Seattle was only _just_ visible.
It’s called Mail Box Peak because there’s a mail box on the top! Martin had a good riffle through the contents, but there was no ice cold beer to be found.
I cut the lawn this afternoon, which meant football could resume. It had got a bit ridiculous having to wade through the grass, and the lawn service – aka Les – has been otherwise engaged in strategic bedroom floor leveling activities…
The winning team: 10 goals to 8!
The proper training sessions begin Monday, we need more practice before Fantastic Fred arrives.
