Stayed at my friends Scott and Raleigh's cabin on Hartstene Island yesterday. We took the Bremerton ferry route, and my passengers needed to stop for coffee in Pioneer Square. I waited in the car.
Looks like Rubaiyat isn't the first place around here to make shoes.
On the way to the island, near Shelton, there's a nursery called Heaths and Heathers. They're not open until next month, though.
OK, here we are at the cabin.
Looking out toward Olympia.
And right across the way at Squaxin Island, an uninhabited Indian reservation.
I love all the madronas.
Did I mention they also have a yurt?
I want to plant madrona and spruce in the yard.
We take a walk on the beach before the tide comes in.
Then we have a crab and salmon feast.
With some 2004 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Domaine Font de Michelle.
