Seattle Part 3: Bainbridge Island

We spent two nights on Bainbridge Island, including a cozy meal at the Harbour Pub where W had spent his 21st birthday, and I got carded the day before my 30th! Bainbridge is about a 35 minute ferry ride from Seattle, and feels a world away. It has a small town feel- it seemed that around every corner we were running into neighbors and friends. I began my birthday by making my family's traditional Sunday oven pancakes. W's family surprised me with a birthday muffin, complete with candle and a full rendition of "Happy Birthday". W and his dad then headed down to the water to try to row a small catamaran out into the bay to hoist in an anchor. Unfortunately the wind had picked up, and they could only get within a few feet of their target. This process left me with time to wander the small beach with my camera while Kipper kept a close watch on the shoreline for his master's return. The day had started with rain, but it soon cleared up and the cloud formations were beautiful. It's amazing how fast they change, one minute the sun is shining, the next you are dodging raindrops.
