Day 1 of Unpacking Boxes

Aloha Everyone,

When Jeff and Jenny's household goods were shipped from Hawaii to Washington, our personal items that were kept in a locker with theirs also came to Washington. There are 33 boxes that have been professionally packed and waiting for us to go over.

J.J. and I have allocated 3 days to do this work. After spending the first day with Jeff helping out, we have only gone over the contents of 4 boxes, producing 7 heavy duty yard trash bags. These are boxes with old company and tax records. The three of us had a great time catching up with everything. Even though Jeff and I speak on the phone nearly everyday, our conversation becomes more special when you can see each other's face.

Lunch at Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Kitsap Mall was a welcome break from unpacking boxes.

Kitsap Memorial State Park was suggested as an alternative to a commercial RV parks for tonight's stay.  

It is a 58-acre State Park located on Hood Canal. The park also has 1,797 feet of shoreline. Great for families with small children. They offer offer activities such as picnicking, camping, hiking, scuba diving, fishing, swimming and even clamming and crabbing during season. I also read that they have a birdwatching program, but have not been able to find out if this is a regularly organized event.

During my evening walk, I saw a wedding party. Their ceremonial set up was among pine trees with a waterview adjacent to a building that can be reserved for such special functions.

Honu's site is peaceful and I love it here. But no WiFi and weak AT&T signal means J.J. and I probably will go back to Eagle Tree RV park tomorrow.

Aloha -- Cathi
