Change of Pace

We spent the late afternoon and early evening out on Chuck’s sister’s and her husband’s 60 year old Grandy boat. A daylong, heavy, dense fog lifted enough to allow us to cruise across Lake Union, moving through Portage Bay to Union Bay then out onto Lake Washington. We then headed over to Cozy Cove, just off Kirkland and dropped anchor. The boat floated gently in the still water as we ate our dinner. As the sun set, the Christmas lights bedecking the homes on shore and the boats moored nearby, all began to glitter and twinkle.

Hi Roo -
Thanks for catching up with what's been happening with us. And special thanks for the anniversary greetings. You've contributed to it being a fun two years!
The area is lovely - fog and all - so we'll have to coordinate a visit!

P.S. Re: the spelling - there's only one Mavis Beacon!
