We were off on a road trip to see Grandma Katherine with the broken ankle (small bone) She had been moved to the Rehab place across the street from the Hospital in Centralia. When we left the clouds were a bit ominous to the West and we didn't know what to expect..
as we left Sequim it was a beautiful morning
One side of the Hoods Canal Bridge was a little gray
The other side was even worse
But all our fears were unfounded because when we got to Centralia (3 hours later) it was a beautiful 73degree day. Warm and muggy! I didn't take my camera in with me because I didn't want to be tempted to take a picture.. I mean if I had been in the hospital for a week, I wouldn't want a picture of me either. Katherine looked good and except for a bit sleepy was kind and loving and appreciative of all her visitors (even the cat they have in the center that makes his rounds to the beds of all the patients). She is still frail and weak, but getting her rest and care and after her ankle heals... well we shall see....
It was a great visit with another sister and brother and after about 3 hours... we headed home.
A long day.
The Olympic Mountains
now how'd that get in here
and back up the Hoods Canal..
and more water
and still looking at water
water water everywhere
yep, you guessed it more water... and silly towns named Duckabush,Hamma Hamma, Dosiewallop and Lillywop...and just as I was about to take more pictures this is what we saw...
ummm yeah, guess going 58 in a 40zone is frowned upon
luckily we were honest lookin' folks and he gave us a warning... Oh yeah and a stern talking to because I HAD NOT UPDATED OUR INSURANCE CARD IN THE CAR SINCE LAST JULY... oops, my bad... I told him it was my fault and he said I owed my husband a steak dinner.
After he left, I said I really owed the sheriff a steak dinner for not giving us a ticket. What a day!
