Anne, your post, Dolphin Cruise, reminded me to tell you all that we will be leaving next Thursday, July 12, for vacation until Thursday, July 19. My husband and I (did I already tell you this?) are going to Lopez Island in Puget Sound, Washington state, to visit a friend. She happens to be a published author, of British mysteries, no less. She and I spend hours on the phone talking about books, authors, writing, and teaching. She’s leaving at the end of summer to teach writing to teachers for two years in Kuwait, a job she’s looking forward to with great excitement.
She has planned to take us on a whale-watching cruise, so we will be seeing orcas, gray whales, and humpbacks, along with eagles, sea otters, and other wildlife. I can’t wait.
Just wanted to let you know that if I seem quiet, it will be because I’ll be gone. M. doesn’t have great internet service on the island, and I wouldn’t take my computer with me on vacation anyhow. Be sure that when I get back I’ll be right back to my computer activities, and 20 Lines is at the top of the list.
Have a great week, and I’ll see you when I return.
