Sunday October 30 The ferry to Bainbridge Island and the Outdoor Book Award

On a flat gray Seattle day, I walk aboard the ferry to Eagle Harbor bookstore on Bainbridge Island. An animated crowd of fifty jammed the bookstore and I received invitations to visit other islands and to return here again. I like commuting by ferry

The ferry had connectivity so I went on line and got the welcome news that Breaking Trail had won an Outdoor Book Awards:
Outdoor Book Award
History/Biography Category
Honorable Mention. Breaking Trail: A Climbing Life. By Arlene Blum. Scribner, New York. ISBN 0743258460
Arlene Blum is truly one of the pioneers of climbing, leading the way and clearing a path for women in expeditionary mountaineering. This is her story, told in her own words: her drive and determination in overcoming barriers; her dreams, achievements and disappointments in life; and the triumphs and tragedies amongst the high peaks of the world.

Afterwards I flew from Seattle to San Francisco. Great to be home with my beloved kitties Midnight and Micou for a couple days after three weeks on the road.
