After talking to them, we went to the island of Dad's youth: Lummi Island.... *cue fanfares*
When we got to the island, we pulled up to the school and Dad showed us the playground and stuff, but there were people inside the schoolhouse!! They were cleaning up after some event they had there so we got out of the car and asked if we could look around. Dad explained that he used to live there and everything.
They let us in! And it was so neat!! We saw his classroom and the little gym.. There was a coatroom and a music room and a teeny tiny kitchen.. it was all very quaint..
It only took like an hour and a half (if that) to tour the whole island so we got in line for the next ferry ride back to the mainland. While we were waiting for it though, we got out to look for seashells, along the shoreline.
So me and Cam looked for more seashells while we waited, with the warning to come back up when we saw the ferry coming back from the mainland.
Once we reached the mainland, we drove over to the place where we were meeting the rest of our family for dinner in Seattle. I forget the name of it, but the place was similar to Texas Roadhouse with less steak on the menu..
After dinner, we went back to Uncle Jack and Aunt Judy's for our last night and the next morning, we left for our plain trip home. Cam was not far-sighted enough to think of and bring a costume, but Aunt Judy fixed him up to look like a great nerd!! I went as "The Scream" which is a painting by Edward Munch. We got a lot of interesting comments at the airport.. It was a lot of fun. =)
So this concludes our Trip to Seattle.
