A little speaking engagement, Whidbey Island and Kerry Park!

Our day started off with a yummy birthday breakfast for Chris at Denny's! It's been YEARS since I'd had a Grand Slam...but it was pretty tasty! Great way to start off our day!!

Next it was my boss giving a great speech at a local NARPM chapter meeting. I hadn't seen Albert in action yet in front of a crowd - he's really pretty amazing. Maybe I'll be able to get up enough nerve to address an audience like that! I just hope I'm not going to have to do it too soon!!

After that, it was more driving to visit some other customers. I'll say that it's not 100% scary with my boss driving...I mean, he does use his headset while talking on the phone in the car. Isla (the lovingly nicknamed Australian speaking Garmin) giving us directions, Albert on the phone, Chris in the front seat trying to direct traffic, Chris and I in the backseat reminding our driver of red and green lights....all in a day's work!!

We got to take the ferry to Whidbey Island, and it was awesome again. We got to take our car on this time, so it was even a little bit more fun. The drive out to visit our customer out there was so green!! Seriously, we were spoiled with great weather, and beautiful views on our driving. It was hard to remember that we were actually working! :)

The folks in Whidbey told us that we should take the other route back to town, and we decided to give it a shot. It was the best suggestion. We stopped at the bridge at Deception Point and had to get out to get a better look at the view - AMAZING!! I decided to bust out the camera. We had some fun documenting our sales trip here! :)

There was something about Charles Whidbey being duped by the folks that told him to take this path in the 1790s, and so he named it Deception Pass - clever!

It was GORGEOUS!! This is my work crew - Albert, Chris, Chris and me! :)

Water, and a really big bridge. Both were cool!

When we were walking back to the car, I noticed these names written on the wall. I said for them to get near their names....and they posed like this without any direction. I love this pic!!

We found an awesome little sushi place in the Queen Anne district and celebrated Chris' birthday with a nice dinner!

Afterwards, we were right near the park with the great view again, so we made the quick drive there to check out the skyline at night. We ended up getting a parking ticket while we were there (oops for parking too close to a fire hydrant), but it was definitely worth it!!

Another great work day in Seattle. Just one more before we head back home!!
