Tomorrow we are likely to take rout shone, down I-5 to arrive in Trout Lake by 10, Image leaving at 3:30 and returning up the back side of the Cascades.

We might even take a peek at the Church of God, Zillah, if we're not running too far behind schedule at that point.


Ed: Gee it is the 17th and I just got up and Trudy ts talking about getting up. correction today is the 16th, Betters the chance we will
be seeing you tomorrow.

On Wednesday we saw a number of services for the shipping industry on the bay, however Astoria didn't seem particularly Nautical.
BTW, Ft Wayne sits on Three Rivers. Rather significant to a fort having been located there.

We are going to breakfast at Jumping Jacks.

Ed: Yea, I am glad you showed up. :wink:
All kidding aside, it was good to see you again and it was an honor to meet Mrs.H and your friend Richard from the Japanese Baptist church in Seattle. Thanks again for letting us know about the shaped note singing event. I always enjoy them, and now have a little better idea of what it is about. Trudy is going to order one of the books and have it sent to our home address in Florida. I was really glad to see how much she enjoyed her first exposure to shaped note singing. She was also blown away by the scenery across Washington and Oregon although my cautious driving up to Trout Lake from I 84 made her nervous, especially the bridge across the Columbia River. Coming down that road on the river side was worse. And I used to think we had some miserable roads in the Adirondacks. I much prefer the rolling hills of central Florida. As I have mentioned these roads with little and sometimes no shoulder are intimidating for me.

Ed: That is us. The Lady on the other end of the row with the big hat and the dog is Karen. When we arrived early she gave us a quick lesson on reading shaped notes. She is also the secretary of the group who sponsored this singing.

Yep, Karen ┼┤illard--ignore the circumflex-laden on the capital w--is surely the most prominent Sacred Harper in the northwestern United States. She is also the compiler of "An American Christmas Harp", which any of you who like variety in your Christmas music ought to consider getting.

Ed: We are beginning to find our way around this section of Vancouver, but on Friday we will be moving down to Jensen Beach in Portland on the other side of the Columbia river. It is much closer to the convention center where the ABC Biennial in being held. We will have to move but Trudy will be preaching at Ceder
Hills on the 10th.

We drove down there this morning and the park looks very nice and is just across the street from a huge Shopping center that has most all of the big Box stores but very few eating places. We had Lunch at Jimmy. John's. Portland parking is scarce, therefore expensive. Bus service is good, buses start running early(5:30 AM) and run in to the next early morning (2:00 A.M) so they should serve us well.

We are looking forward to seeing some of our ABCNYS friends as well as many like Hauro and his wife from other ABC Regions, Just as we look forward to Seeing several CBF Friends in Atlanta.
