The summer, what we have had of it, has just gone too fast.Â Perhaps it will turn into an â€œIndian Summerâ€ and we will enjoy nice weather for another couple of months.Â The lack of warm weather has not slowed us down however.
August gave us a Dinner Date night in Bellevue sitting outside on the patio at Big Fish; a marvelous, if slightly damp trip around the Olympic Peninsula; and a Mystery Trip via the back roads across the pass to Cle Elum and Rosyln.
With the coming of fall we start thinking about what to do in the coming months.Â We are still working on Hawaii for a couple of weeks in either February or March.Â The thought is to rent a house(s) and live like the locals while enjoying the warm weather. Â If you might be interested, get in touch.
A nice group is developing for the Panama trip in February.Â Especially designed for those who do not cruise, this trip allows you a look at Panama City, takes a train ride from the Pacific to the Atlantic, stays at a resort in the rain forest, transits the lock in a paddlewheel boat, and ends at a beach resort.
Later in the spring join a group cruising with Princess Cruises out of Ft. Lauderdale to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Grand Turk.Â Or, take a 16 night trans-canal cruise with Celebrity Cruises from Ft. Lauderdale to Seattle.Â Either of these are great ways to get a little sun when we most need it.
