Almost 2 Years of Risk Blossoming

December 7, 2018

Just a bit over 18 months ago we took on a whole new life as the two of us stepped into retirement. In a unique twist of fate, a quote, an artist, a painting, and the fond recollection of a 1973 Pace Arrow motorhome propelled us down a completely different road than we had imagined for […]

What a great choice it proved to be, especially our whale watching experience on the second day. Tim’s Story Ferry reservations, to Orcas Island, were made in March. […]
