I recently enjoyed reading Notes From A Small Island by Bill Bryson and this weekend we ventured out to a small island of our own nearby – Bainbridge Island. Our friends we not exactly clear why we had ventured out and it was not exactly clear to us either. But we had not been before. Why not go? Adventures don’t happen when sitting at home watching the 7th consecutive episode of International House Hunters.
My biggest takeaway from the trip – aside from a delightful ferry ride, lunch and driving adventure with my wife – was the pleasure that I found in escaping so easily.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
