Leaving Bellingham

We’re on the ferry to Skagway, Alaska. Our plans for putting our tent up on the upper deck have been abandoned due to wind, and it hasn’t started raining yet, but that would have been a further deterrent. So instead we have a couple of sunbeds in the solarium. I chatted with a guy who had done this trip last year with a tent, which lasted less than a day, and this time he has a sunbed.
We had lunch with our gorgeous Dutch friend Mickey, caught up on her news, swapped a few more travel stories and promised we’d see her and her husband somewhere interesting soon. We first met in New York, caught up in Paris and met her future husband then, and have also had them to our place for a meal. I wonder where in the world we’ll see each other next.

      We reconsidered about the tent and we’re glad that we did – I’m just about to start a whole post on our ferry trip, which was really, really great. Yes, Mt St Helens erupted in 1980.Pat remembers hearing it from their place a few hundred kms north. He’s still a hunting man. It was good to see him and Gail again.

      Hi Margaret, no, we only had a few hours in Bellingham, just enough time to have lunch with Mickey, then we had to queue up to put the car on the ferry. xx

    Lovely pictures I particularly like the one of you and Greg with the snow capped mountains in the background. Derick’s sister lived very close to Mount St Helens when it blew up . (Airforce base at Spokane ) so heard all about it. Have a great day xx

      Thanks Margaret. We were going to do a ‘selfie’, just to prove that we are both still here, and a woman offered to take the photo for us … which started a bit of a chain reaction of people getting people to take photos. There was a father and son travelling together to celebrate the son’s getting his Master’s degree in English, and we took photos of them with their camera (Dad’s) and smartphone (son’s).
