Let me tell you about my trip to Washington state. The family and I (including two dogs and a bunny) drove up north, two days before the Fourth of July.
I guess the only thing I want to talk about today is how much I am in love with the natural surroundings of the Pacific Northwest.
The trees are hypnotically beautiful. I have loved the green of Washington ever since I was a child -- the golf course of my youth instilled the love of greenery.
But as a 43 year old, the peaceful, blissful realm of Camano Island replenishes my soul.
