This site was kindly set up by our family because Peter and I are traveling a lot and they wanted to keep track of us. However, the real traveler today is Tess.
Burdened with a head cold, sore throat, and the usual miserable accoutrements of that virus, as well as a large industrial cooler and a secure suitcase full of esoteric water sampling equipment, she is heading off from suburban Connecticut to Papua New Guinea, via Chicago, Tokyo and Singapore. Ken is working his way back to Woods Hole, after dropping Bear off with his parents (I think–there were many plans made to make sure Bear was safe and happy during Tess’ and Ken’s absence from home).
Tomorrow, John and Jane fly home to Portland and Katherine stops in Philly for a few days before making it home for a week and then going back to school. Peter and I are the tame ones–just one quick flight back to Seattle later this afternoon.
Here we all are, last night after celebrating Ken’s birthday.
