I have been AWOB....Absent Without Blogging for a few days with more to come! My DH and I took the ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle
spent the night and then caught the Amtrak Cascades train to Vancouver, BC Canada where we are visiting friends for a week.
Which was so much better than flying the short distance. We had seats on the water side, a beautiful views of the coastline as we traveled. Very restful...plus a bistro car & free wifi...although my laptop hates wifi.
We are in Richmond, bt Steveston Village. A lovely area.
Now the fun news I found in the local paper.
Remember Princess Beatrice's hat from Prince William and Catherine's wedding? It was variously called the pretzel, antlers of thge UFO antenna to name a few and spawned blogs and acres of print. Well Buckingham Palace announced today that it will be auctioned on ebay to raice funds for a UNICEF charity with an opening bid of $8,000. Any bidders???

I will be out of computer range at a friends rural cabin overlooking the Inside Passage in Sechelt, BC over the next week, so won't be able to post much...unless I get to a place my laptop likes.
Talk to you soon
