A Beserker on a Ferry Ride

July 12, 2010 (morning)

Yesterday, on my way to Bremerton for Family Reunion #2, I drove into Seattle. It was a little stressful driving through an unfamiliar city, especially because I hit town when a Mariners game was about to begin and people where embarking a huge cruise ship, probably on its way to Alaska.

I wanted to come through Seattle so I could ride the ferry. I love ferries. It is probably in my Nordic/Beserker blood. I vistied the “Old Country” (as my Uncle Rusty called Denmark) in 1984. I spent much of my time there riding my bike around the country. I often took a ferry to one end of an island, rode across the island, then picked up another ferry at the other end.

Out here a lot of people commute to Seattle on the ferry. What a way to go to work.

Last night, I had a great dinner with Vicki (my first-counsin), John (her husband), Shannon (their daughter), Cindy (my first-counsin), and Dick (her husband).

I am going to spend the rest of the day in Bremerton, then head out in on Tuesday morning, south toward the Redwoods.

Today would have been Donna’s 48th birthday.
