Tuesday morning I left drive down to the Seattle and Olympic area to search out a few of the rows I liked from the on line pictures. Little did I know that getting over the bridges from New Westminster was going to be the most trying portion of the drive. I left to drive over the Queensborough Bridge, my closest and fastest route to the border crossing. I no sooner turned left and came to a complete stop barely clearing the intersection! Then I basically sat in the same spot inching along for about ten minutes. I decided to go into the lane that goes under the bridge and approach it from the other direction. Traffic in that lane was stopped a few hundred metres beyond. Plan C was to head over to the Pattulo Bridge which is undergoing re-paving and only has one lane in each direction. Eureka! No lineup but slow going due to the construction. In the end I got to the border about 15 minutes later than usual.
My first stop was in Stanwood at Cotton Pickins' to pick up this cute row.
Woolie Mammoth blog were on a boat cruising the bay! We were planning on meeting up in La Conner the next day.
Next stop was at Bremerton Pacific Fabrics where I picked up the row with the Sasquatch.Click here to see her blocks in progress and other pictures from that visit.
