Bellingham is one of the Best Places To Live

Bellingham is a lush, green, rapidly growing and typically Pacific Northwest city about half way between Seattle and Vancouver. Its legacy, still in force to a degree, is as a thriving lumber and paper-mill town and seaport for outbound forest products. Today, the beautiful setting, climate, and relatively low costs for a West Coast location are bringing many migrants to the area. The economy is making the transition from cyclical basic industries to more of a steady new-economy flavor. Some work locally, some make the lengthy commute (likely in carpools) to Seattle and especially its northern suburbs and some telecommute or run small businesses serving clients in the larger cities. There is a strong and growing base of retirees.

Awkward Hug?

Well, I picked up a passenger and her small child at the Bellingham International Airport and drove them home one evening.  After I had unloaded their bags and helped them to their door I was rewarded with one such awkward hug.  At the time I thought she was stepping towards me to shake hands and therefore was feeling kind of dumb when she blind sighted me with a hug.

Everyone has experienced one of those unexpected hugs that takes you by surprise and is totally awkward, right?

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to a repeat customer hugging me when thanking me for a ride but this was someone I had never picked up before.  Anyway just thought I would share my stranger hugs with you!
