Alright so out of boredom while Audrey and I were driving across Washington, Oregon, and California (and Nevada and Utah), I decided to write a few notes really quick about our adventures in the city, shopping, and camping. Driving not so much; I kept trying to check my blog on my dad's phone but 1. I can't write posts on his phone and 2. we lost Internet connection somewhere in Cali. I was getting pretty P.Oed at the fact that it would shut down in the middle of reading other blogs and such. So here are the mini entries I felt obliged to write:
Well sadly today was my last day on the Island :( It wasn't wasted though luckily; Audrey and I spent the day with my friend Heidi who I used to live next too when I still lived there. We wandered town observing the local goods, shops, and food. I cannot believe that I spent $10 on food, I was getting annoyed that I was spending all my money, but then I found $20 in my pocket, I was pretty excited. We started off at the Safeway by getting a tube, roll, thing of chocolate chip cookie dough and eating it raw with spoons on a bench outside... don't judge. Then Heidi and Audrey resulted to buying 60 cent flavored water, that actually tastes really good, from a machine outside of the market that refused to give us our water. Kicking it helped.
We then moved onto the toy store I used to buy Playmobil from when I was five, and call me weird, but I was excited to get a free Playmobil magazine there from old times. Heidi and I of course reminisced about playing Playmobil in my living room, while Audrey thought I was a freak for getting the catalog. We then moved on to the bakery next door. Audrey got this pesto sandwich that she really liked while Heidi and I shared a baguette. We also passed my cherry Italian soda around. Yummy food :)
Then we moved on to Frozen Yogurt, and I am now dubbing Heidi a genius at healthy, fro-yo making: Coconut Lime Fro-Yo plus Kiwi and Mango, DELICIOUS :) It was a burst of flavor in my mouth every time I took a bite.
But sadly we had to say our good byes to Heidi because she had a guitar lesson and we were off for another day at the dock.
I have to say that I'm pretty proud of myself. I jumped from the pillar like five times, and I jumped from the very top bar of the pier too :)
That was it for the day, but tomorrow we have to say good-bye :(
Well after a tragic and tear jerking good-bye, we departed from Katie's house and as soon as we rounded the corner, tears formed in my eyes. I have no idea when I'm going to see my best friend again, but hopefully it'll be this winter during break. I'm so excited! When we got to Seattle, we did a walk through of Pike's Place Market. It reeked of fish, but the art was amazing. We met up with our friends Isa and her sister Leanna (and their mom and brother) who happened to be in the city at the same time, so we met up with them for lunch.
