so northwest

Sometimes I can totally disguise myself as a Northwesterner.  I have lived here for about 6 years now, so I’m sure I’ve picked up some Northwest tendencies, but sometimes I really impress myself at how well I can fit in. I can wear all neutral colored clothes including a North Face, go out without make-up and a shower and I even own a pair of sandals that can transfer from land to water (I know, it’s almost wrong).  

This weekend I added one more “Northwest” type activity to my resume, the husband took me crabbing in Birch Bay!  It was a bunch of fun.  I even cleaned and cooked them!  Here are photos from our adventure…

    You are turning into a true Northwesterner! Come east sometime when it is warm and we can go deep sea fishing.

    Love,
    Dad
