A Love Story 14: drive to the ferry

Morning of his first wake-up at her house in Seattle, having arrived the day before. He's made breakfast - surprise! - and she's suggested they take a daytrip to Port Townsend.


Leave the key for the kid to come walk the dog.


Away they go.


On the road. She drives a Volvo station wagon. Discussion of Port Townsend.


A ringtone.  His son calling. Wants to put grandson on the speakerphone.


Little boy asks: Where are you, grampa?


What are you doing?


Where are you going?


Are you driving?


Who's driving?


What's your friend's name?


End call.


Subsequent discussion re: his son and his son's marriage.


Ferry exit.
