Rain, Rain went away

I think I have Washington figured out. It rains and rains and rains so you really start to hate this place. Then, when you least expect it, the sun and mountains come out and you forget how much you hated this place. In fact, you fall crazy in love with it. Very sneaky.

This weekend’s adventures took me to the Olympic peninsula for a Officers’ Christian Fellowship Retreat. To get from our Peninsula (Kitsap) to the Olympic Peninsula, you cross the Hood Canal Bridge. This also happens to be the bridge that submarines pass through to get back to port.

As a bunch of Navy wives who never get to see our husband’s office, we were chatting about the probability of seeing one.  Just as we pulled up, lights started flashing and we thought we timed it just right. Unfortunately, we were stopped so tugs could pass, but it did give me to opportunity to get out of the car and snap this:

The retreat was focused on building successful and meaningful relationships with a focus on “finishing strong” in marriage. I can’t wait to go through the material with the hubs when he gets back from this deployment. Between sessions, we were able to take a short hike to this:
