Left snow-bound (I know!) New Jersey and flew Alaska Air non-stop to Seattle, where we arrived fairly late, picked up our rental Corolla and GPSed over to Philippe's safely.
Out today in mild, sunny weather, shopping. The ladies foolishly left Paul in front of a camera store appropriately called "tall's" while they went off to admire antique jewelry. He immediately found a nice, waterproof, point-and-shoot, beach camera and equipped himself for the rigors of Hawaii. Now all he needs is sunglasses. And credit from the neighbours for bringing the sunny weather to Seattle.
