Because Sunday was Easter, they celebrated her birthday Saturday afternoon. He took She out for a drive. They visited several of the most beautiful spots on the island. At one point they were on the north side above Lime Kiln Park. He took She there to look for whales (even though it is a bit early in the season).
She stood at the retaining wall taking in the vast expanse of blue water and blue sky before her. Even the Cascade Mountains were blue.
Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue. Blue.
She said, “I don’t see any whales — so you’re about to hear one!”
He said, “Don’t be silly. Of course you can’t see Wales. This isn’t even the right ocean!”
She had a very happy birthday, even if she did spend it with a smart-alec.
