Today is the third rest day of my trip. It’s hard to imagine a better place for it than Tim and Michele’s house here in Camano Island. The weather is perfect: low humidity, 70s, light breezes, clear blue skies.
At 8 a.m. we had a FaceTime chat with a mutual old friend from our school days. Next we went out to brunch and took a motor tour of island. We walked briefly at a beach and observed an episode of HGTV’s Island Life being filmed.
After some ice cream we came back to the house to talk and sit on the deck watching critters (including a family of raccoons) pass by. Mount Baker showed off its snowy top all day.
Tonight we’re doing burgers on the barbee.
Tomorrow it’s back to the bike for my ride to begin a brief (550 mile) ride to the Pacific coast and, ultimately, Portland to catch a flight home on the 26th.
