Last evening we saw a rainbow during sunset. This is the second time in a week we saw one. Prior to this, I don’t think I’ve seen a rainbow for a couple years. Very cool.
We went to the local farmers market this morning. They had awesome produce and flowers. When we got back, we saw a rowing race in progress. It turns out our camping neighbor was in the race and won first place in her class.
This morning, Dart woke up full of energy. He drove us crazy. We took him out on the Discovery Trail, which starts in Port Townsend, to wear him out. Since it is warmer than usual today, a combination of the heat and the trail did the job.
Soon after we got started, there was two bicyclists and a dog coming our way. As soon as the dog reached a path to the beach, he left his guardian and ran down to the water to cool off. Apparently, they had just completed six miles and the dog wasn’t waiting when he got an opportunity to cool off.
There were birds and lots of flowers along the trail.
It also goes by the Port Townsend Paper Company where, according to their website, “produces Kraft pulp, paper, containerboard, and specialty products by blending virgin and recycled fibers at our mill headquarters in Port Townsend, Washington.”
While I spent most of the afternoon trying to download some files, Regis had his own dreams.
I tried to use my unlimited Verizon data plan to download the files with no luck. My computer kept dropping the connection. I went to town to access some free WiFi. After two tries and several hours, I gave up and came home.
In the meantime, Regis spent the afternoon with Dart dreaming of racing in the R2AK (Race to Alaska). I pointed out that I couldn’t get my kayak around the buoy the other day and we couldn’t even make it to Whidbey Island from here, what is he thinking? He said he wasn’t thinking of me being a crew member. I’ll be happy to cheer him on from a warm and comfortable location. (Regis wants me to ask for an early call out for potential crew members).
