From the Twilight zone
All this is part of a lengthy ramble around Washington State, with perhaps some incursions into Oregon. We caught the Coast Starlight up from LA last Wednesday week and noodled around in Seattle for three days, shopping and acclimatising, looking in the odd museum and gallery. Then we went off to Whidbey Island and then across to Port Townsend, along the top of the Olympic Peninsula to Cape Flattery, the most north-westerly point of the US. On to Forks etc.
One more week's worth of sightseeing and it'll be Clarion West time—the new class will just be being broken in by Paul Park at this point.
No, it's true, I'm not getting a lot of writing done. :)
