First day of school...
No, I'm not going back to school. As a proud graduate of the 4th grade (3 of the toughest years I ever spent, by the way), I think I reached my educational potential a long time ago. ;-)
Today is the first day of school in Friday Harbor. Not a big deal, but it does mark the local feeling that another summer season is done. Don't tell that to our desk staff (including the Blonde) as they continue to fill seats on boats. This has been a very busy season in Friday Harbor.
I walked uptown for a breakfast sandwich this morning, and didn't see much difference in the number of people on the streets. School starting does slow down family travel, but there are a lot of us who prefer to travel during the "shoulder seasons".
