WOW What a Labor Day Weekend Bessy and her husband Ed took an AmTrack train from Chicago to Seattle to come visit us.
They arrived Sunday evening... We met them and they followed us into "town" to check into their Motel. Then we all went out for dinner and visited for awhile.
It was great to meet them. We met them Monday, took them to see John's shop, had lunch and went for a ride for some "site" seeing. Then we came to our house .. 5 acres. So they could meet our animals. It started sprinkling lightly, but we have a big umbrella. We do not have a ramp here yet. That is on the agenda for either this Fall or next Spring. After having a stroke .. we realize this is important. I can get up and down the stairs as they are wide and have a railing on both sides.
I have also learned a great deal this weekend on handicap accessible restrooms and a REAL need to have FAMILY bathrooms. Ed has been care giver to Bessy along with their daughters, so he is a real pro at where to stop. One rest room I stood outside the door, while he assisted Bessy in the handicap stall.
Our site seeing.. going on secinic drive, showing them the Bay and San Juan Islands was really fun. A real change of scenery from Chicago..lol
John and Ed hit it off great and Bessy and I had a great time chatting and catching up in the back seat.. We went to the Naval Air Base, they usually have planes flying and a real site.. It was closed for Labor Day ..
We had a great time at the house and Bessy and Ed got meet our zoo. They brought each of the dogs a new toy.. We took them back to town, had a really nice dinner, and more chatting.. They left this morning to go back to Chicago.
It was a short but eventful visit and a GREAT time. They arrive home on Thursday.. Bessy said to tell you all Hi.. and she is looking forward to being back in chat. and catching up.
What a wonderful warm couple.... I will post a couple photos in the Gallery later.
