Dad's Diary 1989-1999 [lightly edited]
Friday 1989 - [Southwest Harbor Maine] Nice library in SW Harbor, had soup and muffins for lunch nearby, also a Children's bookstore. Drove around part of island, saw ferry off to Swan Island, very foggy. Saw lighthouse. Had supper near SW Post Office, Clark Point. The B&B moved us to a new room, had forgotten that.
Saturday 1990 - [Japan and China through 9/30]
Sunday 1991 - Picked up our NZ friends at Joe Hiestand's at 10am, then we had lunch and drove them to the Columbus airport with several stops in WCH as he wanted to get pictures of some of the Dowds there. [Linda Hiestand Dowds is the daughter of the NZ Joe Hiestand] We made it with 10 minutes to spare. They were going on to Zurich to visit her aunt [who died at age 101 last year]. We went on to see Thelma Holmes, visited the Harley [or Hardy?] House in Westerville and really had a personal tour. Supper at McDonalds.

Made a stop in Leavenworth where the architecture is like a Swiss village. Plenty of rest rooms. Had supper at Cle Elum, back to Seattle about 8pm at the Comfort Inn where we upgraded to a suite at same price as we paid for the single room.
