Getting acclimated to a trailer takes a little doing. The flush toilet is like one on an airplane. You flush longer than  you think and that is it. What you flushed goes into a tank and after a while( not by me), it is emptied into the city sewer. I originally wanted my cabinets painted. But they are so nice in their natural light wood, that I am leaving them. The deck that my son and Grandson built is wonderful,although it has rained all day, we did enjoy it our first day here. I hear from my daughter that the shower is fantastic. I'll find out later . We turned the heat on for the first time and it seems to have created a worry for our son. So we switched to electric heat. We will save the propane for cooking. Noodle is having a rebirth here. He seems to be loving it. He has even barked a few times. Who knew he knew how to bark. As a matter of fact, he can do the step into the trailer. Now that surprised me! We went to the grocery store this morning and found that the prices are as high ,if not higher than in Venice. This afternoon we drove a Grandson to the ferry for his trip to the airport. Getting to the airport is an adventure. First an hour and a half drive  to the ferry. Then the trip by ferry to Seattle. Then a 3 block walk to the underground train, called a subway in the rest of the country,and a ride to the airport. He is now on his way to Alaska and his seasonal job in Denali. Tomorrow , my daughter leaves, but I gain a granddaughter in law.

When we brought my Grandson to the ferry, we rode over a floating bridge. It has to float because the river is so deep that they couldn't lay pilings. I also learned that the military uses this water way to get their submarines out to the Pacific. I would love to have seen that. I hear they are very big.  Really big.
