In no time I am lost in downtown but thanks to me and Rick being here last summer there a few landmarks that jogged the memory enough that I zigzag my way to the Fairhaven section of Belly. There the Chuckinut Drive road starts which is the scenic way to Anacortes. The rain was really coming down all the way through Belly and kept dumping until I made the turn off Chuckinut out in Edison.

In Edison I stopped at the same place Rick and I ate at last summer and got one of the best chicken curries of my life! It was unbelievable with strong citrus undertones to the coconut milk based curry. A piece of rhubarb pie finished the meal and almost me too - a little too much food really. But, the weather had cleared a bit and the rain was now completely stopped.

All of us were gear heads to some extent or another though Bill's fascination with camp stoves was beyond any of us. He showed us his iterative designs on the basic soda can alcohol stove and shared his experiences with various purchased products. All of sudden we realized it was 10:45 pm and Wendy, Ken and I were taking the early ferry to Sidney, BC and needed to get some sleep and get up early enough for a 7:30 am departure.
