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.
