North to Bellingham
Village Books, a gem of a bookstore in the Fairhaven neighborhood.
Snow Goose, an education vessel that takes folks of all ages on cruises in Washington and Alaska. Our friends at Timber Press and the North Cascades Institute arranged for us to serve as co-naturalists on a birding-by-boat excursion (thanks, Besse and Christian!).
We had to return to Portland for a Sunday night event, but we are already thinking of a future trip to the northwest corner of Washington to enjoy the birds, beers, and bakeries we missed this time around.
