Dance the Afternoon Away

What fun it was to dance the afternoon away at the Bellingham Country Dance Society's annual ferry boat dance party aboard the Elwha from Anacortes to Friday Harbor and back again. By the time the ferry pulled away from the dock, the band had started to play and we were dancing.Perhaps because I had danced every single dance once the ferry left Anacortes, I felt that time was going by too fast because all of a sudden we had pulled into the dock at Friday Harbor.
There were more contras, circles, squares and waltzes to be danced once the ferry departed Friday Harbor.During a brief stop at Lopez Island to let more passengers onto the ferry, the music continued.
And we danced on.
Here's the view from the ferry as we traveled through the islands back to Anacortes.
This year, we danced to contra tunes played by Ruthie Dornfield, Ginny Snowe and Clyde Curley from Seattle and Bellingham with Marlin Prowell of Bellingham calling. For a current dance schedule and more information about the Bellingham Country Dance Society, visit their website at -
