For a change of scenery, to give driveway space back to the kids (Carlee, Mercury and Alden) and to feel how it is at their investment property on Welfare Avenue, we have 'trucked' on over to Welfare Avenue for a few days. It is so quiet and peaceful here.
This property is a stones throw from the water with access at Eagle Harbor. Andy I are enjoying morning and evening walks to the beach at Pritchard Park, to watch the Bainbridge Ferry come or go with its cargo of commuters from BI to Seattle and back again. The ferry makes the most lovely sound with her air horn.
The kitchen cabinets are mostly in and are looking wonderful
Andy took us all out to a Sushi Dinner! With everyone's busy schedules it was unusual to have all of us around at the same time, so we grabbed the chance. Thanks Andy, for a wonderful and delicious dinner!
Andy and I have been visited by three bucks and one doe in the evenings. They are black tail deer and are in excellent health. Beautiful shiny coats with no ribs showing. Still in their fuzzy antler stage they have such charm and appeal!! And not afraid of us at all!
Merc and Carlee came on over late in the day

We took a ride over to Fay Bainbridge S.P. to visit the dump station and we met Doctor Bill Larson, a vet on wheels. He was using the dump facilities as we were filling up with fresh water and we struck up a conversation. His mobile vet clinic looks incredibly sweet and clean. He invited us to take a tour and Jodie got a bunch of pics to capture the space. His truck seems to have it all, with an xray machine, operating station, dental station, clavitron(?) for sanitizing his instruments and lots of storage.
When he heard that Maudie was traveling with us he asked if he could meet her (he has a thing for older cats) and we enthusiastically said sure
That night, while we were parked in a grocery store parking lot while Jodie was getting supplies, I looked out the window and saw 2 of the freakiest looking dogs yet. I asked the owner if I could take some pics and she proudly said "yes." They are Mexican hairless dogs and if you look carefully, one has a mohawk and the other is playing it conservatively. Good golly, what is the deal with these dogs?
