Bellingham, Washington

Before our African Safari we spent time in Bellingham, staying at the Cedars RV Resort in Ferndale, where we stored our RV when we will be in Africa. We got together with a friend of Bob’s from high School, Marguerite and her husband Don Shepherd. One day we walked the South Bay Trail, connecting downtown Bellingham to the Historic Fairhaven District. This iconic waterfront walk is 2.5 miles one-way and is mostly flat, including the Taylor Dock over the open waters of Bellingham Bay. We started in Fairhaven and stopped at benches along the way to soak in the views of the distant Canadian mountains for it was such a clear day. On our way back we stopped for dinner at Keenan’s Restaurant watching the beautiful sunset from our table. Another night we went out with Don and Marguerite Shepherd to the Hotel Bellwether, situated on Bellingham Bay, to listen to the Chris Fegler Band and have dinner. What a spectacular view from our table of the Squalicum Harbor Marina and the vibrant sunset. Bellingham is a fun city to live in and we certainly enjoyed our time here.
