While we were there we went out on a 50-foot boat whale watching. I love the motion, just like I love air turbulence. For some it is uncomfortable, but to me it's actually soothing and fun. We were in the middle of a small pod of whales who surfaced and dove back down with a show of tails and a puff of spray. What a trip! Maybe they charge for boat watching tours. The cost is something like five tunas a participant with no guarantee of seeing a boat.
I'm glad to be home, back at the lake writing Green Ice and plunging Brooke and Jack into ever increasing danger. While I was in Oregon two small bookstores agreed to take Blue Ice, both in Lincoln County. If you're out that way, stop into Bob's Beach Books or Allegory Books and Music and see if you can find it. I also have Blue Ice in the King County Library here in the Seattle area. You can also request the book from your local library and they'll get it in if they don't already carry it. ISBN #978-1-61009-045-2. OK, that's the end of promotion for this Blog.
