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.

|A cafe in Fairhaven.
|Soe told us he used to spend whole days hanging out at this cafe.
