Last days in PT

I’ll be heading out for the winter next week, so I took a browse through downtown today, checking out the shops that likely won’t be there next year. It’s Wooden Boat Festival this weekend, the biggest of the many summer celebrations Port Townsend has. The weather looks a bit iffy, but I’ll try to get down there in between drizzle spells.

My first stop will be Yakima to see friends, hang out at my brother’s golf tournament, and attend my 50th high school reunion. This will be the first trip with my new truck, and the drive is very representative to what I usually see in the west. Escaping Seattle traffic is the toughest trick; after that it will be a while before I see a city again.

I’ll head south to Bend, then the Oregon desert and Nevada, aiming in on the watermelon festival in Green River, Utah. Then, eastward to Cincinnati to visit family. Time to get back into storm-watching.
