The scene is set. Let the cameras begin to roll.
We made our final purchases at the REI Flagship store with its artificial waterfall but great gear and then headed out to meet the rest of the party, have dinner (salmon on a bed of pasta), hit the local Walmart for snacks, and go to the motel.
A ride on the Seattle-Bainbridge Ferry gave us a taste of the ocean and beauty of the landscape and cityscape. I love the international flavor of the population and the culottes that roam the streets like the breezes that come in off the seas. Your own ethnocentricity fades when walking among them.
Verse for the day:
|Philippians 3:13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead,|
|14 with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.|
