For years I dreamed of a day without the ever present wind that use to mark the passage of days here on the Peninsula.
Wow, we’ve had a really amazing summer here in Port Townsend. It’s been day after day of blue skies, barely a hint of a breeze and temperatures regularly in the 80’s. I kept wondering where I could be?
Being an Inland Girl, I was use to still summer days. That was when the heat had a chance to gather. It would force all thoughts to focus on relief; a dip in the lake, sitting by a fan, drawing the curtains in the middle of the day and water fights with the neighbors! Okay, I am definitely idealizing those times but, it had been a while since I hadn’t had to brace myself against the wind or add layers of clothes (that famous Northwest layered-look) as evening came. Every day.
