3 getaways for this weekend, from Blaine bird fest to Chelan pooch parade

Is your worst frenemy from college in town this weekend? Need a last-minute reason to get out of the city? Here are three ideas to get you on the road: 1. Walk the bays and beaches of border country, take a nature cruise on a historic ferry and learn about migratory birds that flock the Salish Sea in nature’s busiest season. Head north to Blaine, Whatcom County, for this weekend’s Wings Over Water Northwest Birding Festival. Saturday, there’s a guided field trip to scenic Semiahmoo Spit, wildlife workshops for kids, birdhouse building, raptor presentations and more. Friday-Sunday, March 13-15, various locations around Blaine. Fees for some activities. Birding Expo and festival headquarters: Blaine Middle School, 975 H St.
