Paragliding and Bellingham
Saturday we took a hike up Tiger Mtn, to Poo-Poo point, where there was a Paragliding Fly-In. Basically, lots and lots of people were paragliding from there. Fun to watch. Sunday we drove up to Bellingham with Soe.
|Waiting in line to launch.||This launch didn't go particularly well.||Going backwards on your butt--not a good thing!||The problem launches are always more fun to watch.||Tandem launches too. Usually something appeared to not go according to plan.||Up, up, and away!||At one point I counted 28 paragliders in the air.||At Soe's friends house near Bellingham. Eric is holding the cat, which has a very strange trait - it drools when you pet it. Note the paper towel held underneath.||Eric, Soe, and Jeannie.||They have a beautiful, lush, sunny yard.||Jeannie's husband Michael carved the tree stumps into mushrooms.||Soe and Eric in front of the railroad track, right behind the house.||A cafe in Fairhaven.||Soe told us he used to spend whole days hanging out at this cafe.|
