Driving to the coast
Spent a nice evening with friends Chandler and Amy and their two cute, too-cute, kids Finn and Camilla. Met another new friend, Don, who is in the process of setting up a new international bacchelaureate school in Boise public schools through the Idaho public schools charter program. A very exciting and ambitious project that will bring a new and attainable IB program to Boise, whose only existing program is Riverstone, a private academy.
Drove as far as Yakima last night, through beautiful wine country at sunset. The contrast of green lushness in the Yakima valley with the desert hills behind is remarkable. It is cherry season here and the crop is bountiful.
Today I drive through the cascades, past Rainier, out to Aberdeen and Ocean Shores. See you on the beach!
