YOU CAN'T BE MAKING UKES ALL THE TIME, and so much of my time is taken up with researching and writing about local history. Last night, as I have for several summers now, I narrated the weekly Summer History Cruise. This is a 2 1/2 hour cruise on the 110 foot Island Caper along the shoreline of Bellingham Bay. I tell folks about the history of Bellingham and the area. It is sponsored by the Whatcom Museum of History and Art and has been a popular event for 29 years now. If you are in the area be sure and come along. Every Thursday evening through August Call the Museum for tickets. How do you like my Derby?
