The Fry Family Quartet, with special guests Katie Eiting, and Alison and Kevin McCabe, squeezed every bit of fun out of this Pacific Northwest weekend. We packed Emotional Rescue to the gills on Saturday morning and headed across Puget Sound to Blake Island for a boat camping weekend – Henry’s and Ruby’s first such experience.
We spent the weekend playing washers, taking naps and enjoying each other’s company. Henry loved sleeping on the boat. Ruby slept better in a tent than she sleeps in her own crib. And the raccoons’ midnight raid of the boat was foiled by bungeed coolers.
The weather, dock space and camp site availability all went in our favor. It’s difficult to put into words the feeling you get sitting on a sunny, forested island watching the ferries cris-cross Puget Sound, with the Seattle skyline in the background. Life is good.
