50th Anniversary Cruise 01/31/13
By Frank
Carol and I went on a 50th Wedding Anniversary cruise a few weeks ago to Hawaii. We were on the ship 16 days r/t and loved it. The cruise went to three of the islands so we had plenty to time to visit on each. I looked like the Japanese tourist of old with my camera slung around my neck constantly. During the trip I took hundreds of photos of nearly everything. I have included a few pictures that kind of show you the area and waters around the islands. It is very beautiful there still but getting too populated since Carol and I lived in the islands for a few years off and on. Our Anniversary was wonderful and this trip was the topping on the celebration cake.

Society of Seven Concert 01/26/13
By Barbara Lawrence
The music we heard this afternoon at Muckleshoot Casino from the "Society of Seven" is some of the best music I've ever heard. The two younger people of this group is a gal and a young man that both have voices that give a person goose bumps when they sing (probably in their mid 20's).

Foggy Day Ride 01/21/13
By Cheryl & John Schmit
Well, you can't stay home because of the fog. We had a quick shopping trip to take so headed out. When we were finished, we stopped in near Mt Vernon to see if the snow geese were there. Sure enough, they were fogged in as well. Check out these foggy images of nature.

Concert 01/12/13
By Barbara Lawrence
We had so much fun today as there were four of us that went to an Elvis impersonator concert at Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn. We were told that we couldn't take four walkers on the same Access bus so Linda's and my bus came at 9:45 and we got to the casino at 10:25 - two other people on the bus had to be taken home before we could go to the casino. We started standing in line by 10:40 (for a 1 p.m. show) - one woman beat us there - and by the time it was ready for us to go in, the line stretched all the way around the casino. Darlene and Barbara Moore arrived about 1/2 hr. after we got there. It is so much fun standing in line because it's a way to talk to so many different people.

Mid-Winter Ride 01/06/13
By Barbara Lawrence
Oh my gosh, what a fun day we had this last Sunday. Cheryl & John picked me up at 9 a.m. and we didn't get home until 6 p.m. When we left here, we drove north to Marysville and went to the Seattle Premium Outlet stores where Cheryl went to Chico's and I went to Naturalizer Shoes - both stores had big sales going on. After trying on a number of pair of shoes, I found a great bargain on a nice pair of dress shoes that had been $100 and were marked down to $50. I really like them. Cheryl also bought some things at Chico's. When we left there we drove north to an area south of Mt. Vernon, hoping to see thousands of the white geese but to our dismay, there were very few of them. We drove up and down a number of roads and saw a few more from time to time but they were too far away to get good pictures of them.
