Washington & Connecticut

Wednesday, July 14, 2004

Paula and her sister Rosemary were whale watching at Lime Kiln Point State Park when I made their acquaintance. By chance I ran into them the next day on the ferry ride back to Anacortes, WA and that's when I got to know them better. Both are on a little vacation, Rosemary is in town from Connecticut to see Paula and soak up the sites in the San Juans.

Paula has been a Park Ranger since 1985, working primarily in the North Cascades. She has a Masters in Environmental Education and is an Education Coordinator. She loves to teach and travels to area schools to instruct the next generation on the wonders of the environment and how to ensure it stays wonderful. I wish I could sit in on one of her classes, she proved to be a wealth of great information. We talked a bit about her work and how money is getting tighter. They had to let go a number of seasonal employees this year to make ends meet. Hope next year they can hire them back.

Rosemary is a marketing consultant for non-profits. She likes to keep busy and is very social, loves to do volunteer work as well.

Paula has traveled all over the US and parts of Canada, Mexico and the Cayman Islands. She would like to visit Italy, Spain and Greece someday. Rosemary has traveled all over the US and parts of Mexico, would like to spend more time discovering what Southern California has to offer.
