I’ve made it a silent goal of mine to stay on the Island as much as possible this summer. Except for a random twitching sensation that drives me to spend hundreds of dollars at Target every 10 days or so, I try my best to stay put. Since there are only two ways off the Island (ferry or bridge) it’s not too hard. Paul’s still has one class hanging over his head, so I thought taking the kids out of the house would give him the peace and quiet he needed to get some work done. I’ve been wanting to take the kids back to the Seattle Aquarium and, since it is just steps from the ferry terminal, it seemed like a pretty easy trip to tackle solo. We spent the morning at the aquarium and then hit up Ivar’s for fish and chips afterwards. A perfect Seattle day!
