The past couple of weeks have been busy for me. I’ve been working on that King Arthur article for most of that time. It’s finally finished, and I can’t wait for it to come out, but in the meantime the weather has taken a cooler turn.
Except for today. Today it’s sunny. That’s springtime in the Northwest, I guess. We did take a trip up to Whidbey Island a few weeks ago. That was a good time. We hoped to see some whales, and I honestly believe we might have seen some, but they were hiding out from us that day. We did get to drive around Langley and visit some of the beaches. Oh, and Penn Cove mussels at Prima Bistro which is becoming a bit of a habit for us. It’s a pricey French bistro, but they’ve got a great happy hour menu.
Going back to the subject of whales. My article for Northwest Travel on whale watching came out. Here’s a link to the partial article. I have a copy of the magazine, but I still need to scan the full article and put it up in the clips section. In the meantime, enjoy!
I was really excited to hear that the San Juan Islands Visitor Center liked what I wrote. I don’t often hear from the people that read my work so this was a nice bit of validation.
I’m still plugging away at the Mystery Project. I figure I only have two or three thousand more words to go. The Shatterer audiobook is on temporary hold while I figure out the recording situation. I just picked up some Roxul to make bass traps though which should mean I’m back to work on that very shortly.
That’s about it here. Now I have to make some bass traps. And lament that I’m not outdoors. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe Whidbey.
