Leaving Redding, CA we drove to Seattle over a couple of days. Arriving here was like a sigh of relief. The most important thing was that our van made it. I am always nervous for it. The weather is perfect. It has been 75 degrees with a little rain from time to time. We are staying with Ben, Courtenay, and Ben’s parents. We have been out on Lake Washington everyday tubing and/or wakeboarding.
