This month we went up to Orcas Island in the San Juans. This is our second year going up here. This is a moment of peace for me in the year. I just rest in this quiet place. We stayed at Beach Haven again for a few days http://www.beach-haven.com/ Hiked, watched the fish and wildlife around the place. Other than that RESTED

On may 21 we went to see a great band from Galway. The Sawdoctors http://sawdoctors.com/index.htm
A great band.

I went down to see the president of Ireland later in the month. She came to Seattle.
