Well it is time to start heading home. We decided to take the ferry from Port Townsend so the we could avoid Seattle. We kissed and hugged the family bye and off we went on our next adventure.
I was now going to be the driver because David couldn’t open his eye after the accident in Seattle. Now I guess I will not get to do as much looking around and more paying attention to the road. I guess it is David’s turn to enjoy the scenery and navigate.
We had a nice drive to Port Townsend where we were going to catch the ferry to Coupeville. I had made reservations on the ferry but we got there

David’s glasses had broken in the accident, one of the lenses shattered and the ear piece was broken beyond repair. Dan went by the house to get his other pair and Heather FedExed them to us at Sarah’s. We got to stay a few days longer and visit our granddaughters. I have always said that everything happens for a reason. If David’s accident happened because

I decided to take a daily photo of his eye, so everyone could see how it developed and now is almost gone after about a month. His eyebrow is still a little bit swollen. You can still see a little discoloration.

We were going to spend the day exploring downtown Seattle with John Lee before we headed to the Mariner’s game. That is the one thing that David was hoping to do while we were here.
As I had mentioned before John Lee finds the best hole in the wall places to eat. He didn’t let us down this time either. He took us out for some great

We were going to go visit our friend, Dawn, but we couldn’t see her until after she got off from work.
Nancy had a dental appointment which went a lot faster than she thought if was going too. She picked up our Mariner tickets for the next night and headed home from downtown Seattle. She was back in time to go to lunch with the rest of us.

David and I decided to go visit our friends, Nancy and John Lee, in Greenwood which is part of Seattle. John Lee had a few days off so we left the kids house in Gig Harbor to drive to their house.

We left our hotel in Brookings, Oregon at 8:20 and headed to Harris Beach.
Harris Beach was named after the Scottish pioneer George Harris who settled here in the late 1880s to raise sheep and cattle. The park boasts the largest island off the Oregon coast. Bird Island (also called Goat Island) is a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for such rare birds as the tufted puffin.

We left our hotel at 7:48. The day started out great until my bank called. They told me that someone had tried to cash a suspicious check. The check was a very old one I had that was my old address and old name. They had to open us a new checking account. At least, the debit cards were still working. Thank goodness for my bank.
It seems my youngest son let someone stay in our home while we were gone. He was supposed to take care of the house and my dog Alice. I filed a police report but I know nothing will ever come of it. I finally got hold of my son who told me Alice was with him and that he thought he knew who did it. I was not sure what else was stolen until I got home. I believe my son is back on drugs. He wasn’t even at the house while we were gone.

We left our hotel at 8 but we had to gas up first. The gas is definitely more expensive in California than any where else we have been including Alaska. We also found out that it is cheaper if you pay cash, with a card it was $4.29

David had never been to Lake Havasu City, so I figured we were this close he needed to see the London Bridge.
We left Ajo 10:46 and headed into the heat. We drove through Vicksburg which looked like there was a lot of ranch land. There were tons of feed lots all around. I didn’t expect to go through ranch land.
