I got back from my trip to the Northwest last night and though I'd post a few pictures of the experience. I never got a change to check out San Juan Airlines, but I did get up close to some of the planes that Kenmore Air operates.

Some of the scenery in the Washington cascades is surreal. Above, this is glacier-fed Diablo Lake. It would be pretty challenging to get a float plane in an out of here, even in good weather.


On the ferry between Anacortes and Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. Interstingly, we had an escort of the coast guard and border patrol on either side of the vessel. Whenever another craft approached, they would circle themselves between them and us. I'm not sure how effective this would be if they wanted to bomb us like the USS Cole, but it was an interesting security gesture.


Kenmore Air is one of the coolest flight operations I've seen. It is a mostly float plane airline that goes from Seattle to the San Juans, Victoria, Vancouver and many other Northwest destinations. I took a picture of this sign posted on the dock at Friday Harbor. The line in the second to last paragraph reminds you that life is at a different pace here, "... sometimes we arrive early, at other times late."


Here I am next to one of the De Havilland Beaver's of Kenmore Air. Flying for them would be a great life. One of the pilots I met was in his 40's or 50's and the other was in is early 20's. I wouldn't mind building my time and living this kind of life for a while, even if there is no prospect for twin time. The hard part would be getting that sea plane time to qualify.


And finally, a few of Friday Harbor with one of the Beaver's taxing for departure in the distance.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
