First Boat Ride

Cindy’s high school friends Greg Shelby & Dan Williams and family (Greg & wife Seana have Harper and Grace and Dan and Bernadette have two boys Harrison & Campbell) were up visiting Greg’s parents who live in Anacortes a couple of weeks ago. 

Marv and Carol extended an invitation for us to join them for the day on the Sunday of 4th of July weekend, and took us all for a catamaran boat ride around Deception Pass. 

I am not a huge fan of deep natural water or boats, but I have to say that seeing the experience through the eyes of my son for the first time took away pretty much all of my anxiety.  I am trying very hard not to let my own fears and reservations cloud my son’s development in any way, but it was easy to forget about being uncomfortable when he was so obviously enjoying himself.

Afterward,everyone went to Rosario Beach for a delicious picnic.  Finn took the opportunity to blow out his diaper, and mommy forgot to bring an extra set of clothes from the Shelby’s house, so little Finn got to spend the picnic portion of the day wrapped in a blanket and wearing only a diaper.  Classy.


All in all it was a wonderful day with friends (who are basically family) enjoying all the beauty the Northwest has to offer.
