Day 16 - Burlington WA - Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Some local people here fondly call it the Great North Wet, but we wouldn't know, as we just got here and brought some Texas sunshine with us.  Many people have thanked us!

However, today is still in the season of April, er, uh, May showers, and we decide the best use of our time is to go shopping in Burlington for some household supplies.  Burlington has Costco and Walmart, as well as quite a few other shops where I could get in trouble.  I never thought I could get so excited over a trash can and trash bags.

We also got food and are amazed and pleased to see that all the cold items actually fit in the refrigerator.  

In Anacortes Cap Sante Marina is near Safeway, and our favorite store is The Market, just a few blocks to the south.  So we can replenish locally.

Our spirits are not dampened by the rain, our shoes are, and Herb reminds me that the rain just makes the flowers grow.

Willie of Willie's Tug,
   and Walldog, Willie and Jake
