A lavender birthday

This summer is the summer of transitions for us. Not only did we marry off a son, both of us turned 50. We still have a month before our last transition of the summer - our 30th anniversary! Today was Esther's birthday. Though she hardly looks a day over thirty-nine, the calendar marks her at half a century. Her choice for the day was a trip to the lavender fields of Sequim. I spent the morning at John Wayne Marina with my latest copy of Small Craft Advisor, while Esther made the rounds of lavender fields. After a great lunch at The Three Crabs, she shopped in town as I went to Port Angeles on another boat gawking adventure. We ended the day with a beautiful walk on the Sequim bike trail.
