Remembering dad on Vashon Island

leave a comment »

My father died a year ago today. We decided to remember him by heading out to Vashon, a place rich with Barrentine history. (Even if we can’t find too much of it.) We visited the lighthouse at Point Robinson, got coffee and drove around a bit stopping at the the tree that ate a bike, found stones dad and Michelle bought in our names at the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum and caught up with Mike and Mary for dinner at the Vashon Hardware Store. (Which used to be owned by the Barrentines.)
We shared some stories and talked about dad throughout the day. But mostly, we were just together. I don’t think that anything we did today was that important, but doing it was. It was Ingrid’s good idea to go out to the island and it turned out to be a good way to spend this day.
