Went to the undersea warfare museum yesterday. It's only about 12 miles south of us and is an easy drive. While walking around I turned a corner and here was a large model of my first boat when I was in the navy. This is the USS Croaker, SSK246. I spent 3 years aboard and we traveled about 25,000 miles. Remember this was in the 1960s and the cold war and Vietnam was going strong. We were based out of Groten Conn. but we weren't there much. Good times

Well we went to the eye doctor yesterday. It appears that Sheri will have to have eye surgery. She is going in for a MRI on her eyes next Thursday. We don't know which surgery will be first, eye's or thyroid. I'll keep you posted.

This vessel is a converted fishing vessel to a yacht and she is beautiful. Just $299,000. Wish I was rich.

OK, my friend Art is always driving around with one hand and shooting pictures with the other and he hasn't crashed yet so I thought I would try it and this is what I got. Not too bad I thought. It kind of looks like we are in the Swiss Alps but no, we are in the north west of the good old USA.

This is the schooner Martha. She is a restoration project here in Port Townsend. I don't know all the details yet but I'm thinking about volunteering. I'll keep you posted.

The parade was a lot of fun. There were 115 entries and some of them were way out there but all of the streets were lined and we had a lot of fun.
This weekend is the Rhododendron festival in Port Townsend. Part of the festival is the "Pocket Yacht" show at the wooden boat ficility. I spent a lot of time here. As usual the weather was wonderful so we spent the whole day in town

Sheri and Smoky are standing in front of our favoriate coffee shop. We don't go here every morning but we are there a lot. The other is "the king" Smoky in his bed, where he spends a lot of time. Were not sure of the date but Sheri will be having her operation for her Graves in the next 3 weeks or so. I'll keep you posted.
This is the light house at the other end of town looking north over the hood canal. This light house is on Fort Warden where we will be work camping starting in June. I just can't figure out why we like it here so much, can you.
This is a picture of downtown Port Townsend. If you look close you can see the snow covered mountains above the the city. The weather has been better than we could of asked for and we have been outside as much as we can to enjoy it. We have been married 19 years as of yesterday. The time has gone by so fast we still can't believe it and we are still on the adventure.

This is a picture of the main gate at our escapees park here in Port Townsend. It has been another beautiful weekend here with temp's in the upper 60s. We spent most of last week in doctor's offices. Sheri is getting ready to have her Graves taken care of. We met the surgen and really liked him. We should know, by the end of this week, her operation date. I'll keep you posted.

This is some of the things people do up here for fun. It's the anual kite flying contest on the coast. On this day the weather was perfect and we had a ball. We are staying home today and being lazy, not that we are not lazy any other day. It's raining today but the forcast for the weekend is wonderful so we will be out and around.
