When Dave's mom passed in 1999, his Dad created this bench in her memory. When Dave's dad passed, these two rhododendrons were added. This is on the lady's tee on the 15th hole. It is high on a hill that looks down on the fairway far below.

There are lots of deer that inhabit Sudden Valley and make the environs around the golf course their home. Here is one that Dave came across while heading over to the 17th tee.

This hole shoots across a bay where, on the far side, lies a beach called PM beach. Dave and Mary Margaret, with their three kid when they were just children, would swim here in the afternoons while visiting dave's parents.

This course is so beautiful and is a treasure to play. It is laid out along Lake Whatcom and had geese and deer running though and over the course. Here is a flock of geese enjoying the wonderful weather in one of the little coves near one of the greens.

While in Bellingham, Dave also got to play a round of golf at the Sudden Valley Golf Course. Before Dave's dad passed away, they would play golf here each year. Every summer Dave's brothers, Del and Don, would join Dave and their dad in playing the D. Leu Annual Golf Tournament. They had a large plaque where each year the name of the person with that year's lowest score was proudly noted. Dave's dad won most of the time but each person did have their moment of glory with their name noting the year that they won.

Dave enjoyed playing this year a "memory round" with the fondest memories returning with each hole played. It most have been very inspirational since he shot a 91. Such a low score on such a difficult course would have won the tournament in many of the past years of play!

In Bellingham, we saw Dave's sister, Doti. She took us around, visiting various places that we had not seen in over 13 years. At that time, Dave's dad was still alive and he would host a large family reunion each summer. All of the relatives from near and far would come and we all would have such a great time together. These annual family reunions dated back to when Dave was a baby and at times would have almost a hundred people attend. They were such great times.

When we left Seattle, to head up to Bellingham, we stopped in Edmonds to visit Dave's cousin, Brenda. It had been six years since we last seen her.
