... I will fly to Snohomish, WA, to spend the next 6 months (the nice ones) with daughter Melissa's family where my major duties will include working on my new apartment and running the farm's U-Pick Raspberry operation through the picking season (late June through early August). Corresponding to this, Maggie is heading to Wisconsin to spend the summer with her family. We'll hook up again in the fall for another adventure, maybe a cruise (ship) to ...

This was the first time we were far enough down the island to get a close up view of the Sanibel Lighthouse, which I had always wanted to see for more than just a split second in passing.
