Dark side of the gift

We took advantage of the blustery weather and the Seahawks game this past weekend (both expected to severely reduce traffic volume) to visit the San Juan Islands.  The trip went well, and I was able to place at least one copy of my book on each island, but the wind and rain were fierce, and the waves were high (as you can see here, in a picture of the lighthouse outside Port Townsend). 

Yes, the traffic was light and the ferry lines were short, but traveling in the rain and wind wasn't always fun -- a gentle reminder that each pro has its con; or, as I said to my daughter just the other day: each gift has its dark side.

But you could also say each drawback contains a gift: it's all in how you look at it...
