It All Ends in Fairhaven: Ski to Sea 2010

Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year in Bellingham. Ski To Sea, or S2S as us ‘hamsters like to call it.

Once again Rick and I braved the crowds in Fairhaven to cheer in our friend, John. If you click on the link, check out the difference in the weather from last year’s event to this years! We dearly missed the sun this year, but it was still a blast, as always. And because of the intermittent sprinkles of rain, I didn’t keep my camera out and didn’t take many pictures, but I did take a few.

I love this picture. Debbie looks so amused by Abbie, who is completely aware of the camera, just keeps talking. She’s so used to having my camera in her face it just doesn’t phase her anymore.

This is Emily, Abbie’s new roommate. Isn’t she cute? She was a little embarrassed when I put the camera in her face. Don’t worry Honey, you’ll get used it.

That’s John, the one right in front of the boat.

Sorry about the slanted horizon. I hate that. But I was so focused on John, and I don’t have my normal computer with the nifty software that would fix that, so tilt your head if you need to.

That’s better.

From here John had to get out of the kayak and run up the finishers chute and ring the bell.

We met up with John’s team at Boundary Bay Brewery where they celebrated a job well done!

  1. ok just a couple of things…no one calls it ‘S2S’ and i know what you mean by ‘hamsters, but no i will not allow this, it is much cooler to say Bellinghammer or more appropriately ‘oh i’m from bellingham’. It is, after all, the city of subdued excitement and we would much rather just go have a good brew or coffee, not try to come up with hip abbreviations for our city name.
    I tell you this for your own good
    i love you
