This past Sunday, I went with Lily down to Bellingham Bay so she could get a nice walk and some fresh air on her one and only day off work this week. She wasn't along on Saturday's walk with the ladies because even though she asked for the day off, everyone else also wanted to have the day off, too. She doesn't have any kind of seniority and they work her very hard. She works in a fish packing plant and does physical work all day long, twelve hours a day and sometimes ten days in a row without a day off. All of us who care about her hope she can find something less demanding one of these days.
Lots of stuff sticking to that rock
We were out there during low tide, as you can see from all the barnacles and shells attached to that rock. When I moved here ten years ago, I was clueless about tides and didn't know that they come and go at such speeds; we get two low tides and two high tides every single day. You can see the tide chart here, if you're interested. Anyway, it was a really nice way to spend part of the weekend, and people were out in force, enjoying the beach along with us. I love it here.
