The quintessential Pacific Northwest experience

In 1988 the building was completely remodeled and reopened as the Salish Lodge. It is now proudly owned by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe.
Out-of-towners may recognize the Salish as the setting for Twin Peaks, the David Lynch TV series.

We would learn this at the end

But at this point in the day it was fun!

You got to mix all the frosting packets together

Like a science experiment


Thy do look cute!

So Anya and I hit up the Portsmouth Children's Museum


The science of motion.  Video Clip: Science

Some physics, weather and nature!


And of course bubbles

The science of being inside a bubble


I noticed later, that this x-Ray in the Dr. Office exhibit, looks exactly like the x-ray of the repair they did on my ankle a few years ago.  Is this me on the wall at the museum?

Smoothies and then a trip across the harbor


Ferry ride to Norfolk and back


The funeral for Hugh.  Anya's Bamboo plant.  Hugh Bamboo 2017-2017.
