I am so ticked off, really angry right now. What happened this year to Thanksgiving, one of our most traditional, non-religious, rooted-in-history holidays, and one I have very much looked forward to every year since I was a child?
Community Events, November 2015
Mutiny Bay is blanketed in morning fog with deep ship horns echoing from mid-channel. The July sky will clear with the day’s heat but we launch into a still, insulated world. John took a compass reading last night, so we can head in the direction of Double Bluff.
In the dark tent I find my earplugs. Listening to the pounding surf at Fort Ebey State Park is making me nervous. In the morning my husband and I plan to launch through the breakers and head south on the second leg of our circumnavigation of Whidbey Island.
Many of us are big picture people, some of us are better at seeing the small details. Hometown Hero Jerry Lloyd, however, sees the forest and the trees clearly at the same time. His motivation is what is best for the community as a whole, and then he narrows the needs of individuals all at once.
Finally, I have time to write after a very busy summer seeking out, enjoying and monitoring birds. And spending time with family.
