Most people decide to head up Interstate 5 from Bellingham to Birch Bay. Not bad if you want to get from Point A to Point B. But as I left Bellingham in the rain heading to the on-ramp, I decided to take the “Road Less Traveled”.
Heading out Holly to Marine Drive, I noticed that our friends had left for Belize as I passed their house (we visited them earlier). Passing Fort Bellingham the sky was beginning to break to the west.
On the Ferndale Road, I could see the creeks were running high from the rain, although crossing the Nooksack; it looked like the water level was falling.
Slater Road was next, and I decided to stop in at Barlean’s Seafood. They got a new shipment of Dungeness Crab today and I left there with two crabs weighing in at 5.88 pounds. One crab weighed in at 3.12 pounds.
