The trip in May was a great one but all too brief. Caity and I went together. Debbie and her dad, Dan, drove to Michigan so that Dan could enjoy a high school class reunion with former students, some of whom have discovered Dan on Facebook!
Heading to BellinghamDon
05/10/2011, Over North Dakota
We are off!! I am flying to SeaTac from Orlando and Katie is coming in from Las Vegas. We meet at 1:30 at the airport, pick up our rental car, and head north to Bellingham. We hope to arrive at 4, do a quick trip to the grocery store to provision and then head to our boat in Squalicum Harbor. We hope we get to meet the team at Northwest Explorations before going down to Change of Latitude. There, we will meet a former student, Paula Johnston (now Paula Dagnon) and her husband Brian. Paula is a professor at Western Washington State University and Brian is a pilot with Alaska Airlines. The four of us plan a sunset cruise to Pleasant Bay. Paula has fixed a stellar dinner which we will enjoy after anchoring the boat. Then, we will pull anchor and head back to the marina. Should be a great day ahead!!!! More later.

I can hardly wait. In just a few days, Katie and I will be onboard Change of Latitude for a 5-day cruise in the San Juan Islands. I depart today for Orlando and my annual International Reading Association Conference. Then, I fly to Seattle on Tuesday where Katie and I will meet at SeaTac, take a rental car to Bellingham, and go for an evening cruise with a former doc student who is now at Western Washington State University, Paula Dagnon (formerly Johnston). I can hardly wait!
