Beautiful Washington!

*Posted originally on the amberwavesband.com site. Moved here and post dated.

The park where we have stayed the last couple of weeks does not have wifi, so posts are few and far between, so here is a quick catch-up through pictures. Washington is a beautiful state, though I must report that we have not had any big foot sightings just yet. Maybe he doesn't like acoustic music? Oh well.

We had some great shows upon arriving in the area, including the Si View Summer Concert Series. This picture is the beautiful Mount Si, standing tall in the backdrop of our stage.

 It certainly isn't all work and no play. We took a trip down to Pikes Place Market, visited the docks and the original Starbucks!

When we finished our fun, we headed to the home of some old Colorado friends and they gave us a tour on their boat! Yes, they even let the kids take turns driving it.

Later that week we played for the Port Ludlow Festival and took the ferry from Coupville to Port Townsend. It was chilly, but an amazing ride!

We couldn't be this far to the northwest without a trip into Canada. We chose a day trip to see Granville Island and Vancouver's Chinatown!

In addition to all of these great sights, we're staying up north at a campground in the Puget Sound area, right on a rocky beach, full of crabs and clams that spit when you walk by. Our bus is parked right up against a very large blackberry bush. It's been fantastic! The only thing lacking is wifi, but that does have its own advantages,

I suppose. Starting Saturday we have 7 shows over a 9 day run before heading to the beach for a few days. Our "boat" friends also have a beach house and we will be treated to some R&R right by the beach.

I can feel the sand on my feet already.
