Once a year my mother and two sisters get away for a weekend to reconnect. We drink a lot of wine, never cook a meal and do whatever we please.
Last year, we spent the weekend with my sister, Tracy, at her “work” home. A haunted 100+ years old home in southern Ohio. Tracy gave us the tour of Ohio green acres and at night we poked fun at her resident ghost, d’Ellie (dead + Ellie).
Last weekend, sister Melinda, booked a houseboat located on Lake Union in downtown Seattle (owned by a friend of a friend). The weather was perfect in the low 80’s and we had use of their small paddleboat. Our navigational skills were a bit off (The rudder was faulty! Honest!)
Absolutely, the best time.
Next year, it is my turn to plan. Possible choices are Victoria, B.C., or La Conner during the tulip festival, or Port Townsend (Do you think I can talk everyone into experiencing the Steampunk Festival?) or maybe Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. We’ll see, but anywhere will be just fine.
