Christmas 2009: Meema + Dampa’s, Wolf Creek

Dampa’s fudge, board games galore, myriad drummers drumming, applets and cotlets and, of course, the unwrapping of many presents—Christmas in Bellevue was a lot of fun!  Though we were sad to leave, we were excited to stay at our new favorite: the Wolf Creek Inn—a historic stage coach stop which became a favorite of Mary Pickford, Jack London, Orson Welles, Clark Gable and more.  The Inn is a gem and the food is amazing.

spring trip: bellevue and port angeles


Rock skipping, pizza, glacial lakes, snow-covered mountains, easter golfball hunts, stuffed polar bears, card games . . . We had a wonderful stay with Meema + Dampa.  We spent the first night in Bellevue, before heading up to Port Angeles to visit Grandma.  The weather was incredible in Port Angeles and we took full advantage of being in a beautiful setting in gorgeous weather.  After a couple nights there, we returned to Bellevue for one more night.  Elliot had so much fun with her Meema and Dampa, especially the latter who was bed-ridden the last visit and was really enjoying making up for lost time.
