Enjoying the islands

This weekend for the 4th my mom had her annual picnic. Mom and Dad started this tradition years ago and the whole family looks forward to eating and blowing up things together!! The guys kind of have an unspoken tradition for having the coolest thing to light off!
My brother Dave and his wife and daughter came up from Oregon and stayed with us, so we took them out to Friday Harbor on Friday evening and met up with Alan and Claudia for dinner at Downriggers - our favorite restaurant. If you ever make it out to Friday harbor you have to go have the "Chicken Gorgonzola Salad" and the Onion Rings. The salad, has chicken (obviously!) honey roasted pecans, tomatoes, lettuce, pasta, onions, gorgonzola cheese, and the best balsamic/barbeque dressing you've ever had. I've tried to replicate it to no avail :-(!
I don't have many pictures from the 4th as my camera was acting up! I can't afford to replace it right now - especially since it's time to upgrade next time!!
Here are Dave and Sue enjoying the ride out, with Mt. Baker in the background...............
Here are Randy, Dave, Sue, Claudia and Alan as we wait for our dinner reservation........
As we were waiting the ferry came in...................beautiful evening..............
We had a great weekend - and was that weather gorgeous or what?!?! Hope you enjoyed yours. Now - back to normal - whatever that looks like!
