School's Out For Summer!

July 1st
First day of my summer break started out at Starbucks.
 We celebrated with our daughter and grand kids.
Because we live in Seattle,
we  honor such occasions with some sort of coffee concoction.
Today was no exception.

Tom and I them headed to the town of Edmonds,
 for a 30 minute ferry boat ride, to the town of Kingston.
We parked our car and walked onto the ferry.

 After we landed, it was a short walk to town.
We had a leisurely lunch at a local cafe, on their outside patio.

 Today was the first day of clear, blue skies and warm weather.

 Leaving Kingston

 Once back on the "main land", we visited the Taki Tiki.
With our beautiful, warm weather, we just had to take in this ambiance.

Here's to the start of my Summer Vacation!
