fun using all my navigation tools



I just came back from a weekend north of Seattle. I saw a user POI called George B’s home. George, I was close by.

We really liked the seaport town of Edmonds. We had some friends bring us there from Lynnwood. I was in charge of navigating. The pressure of being responsible for the correct turns in time to alert the driver is always a little nerve racking, especially with people I don’t know well.

Also when poking around the area and checking out some of the nearby San Juan islands, I found one called, Blind Island. Someone told me years ago why it was called that. I think it had to do with a duck blind but not certain. I don’t think there is much there but would like to set foot on it at least.
 
I used my combination of tools on this trip: Sendero Maps to research from my hotel room; the BrailleNote GPS to help in navigating our friends; The Seeing Eye GPS to trigger nearby points of interest in Edmonds and Uber to get us to and fro. Did I mention my Seeing Eye dog?
