I had an absolutely fabulous and wonderful vacation in Washington! It is SO BEAUTIFUL there! I would move there in a second if I could get the rest of my "core" people to go with me. Here is a photo from the morning I left....this is at O'Hare. You can see Chicago in the background. I was feeling mighty wistful when I took this shot because Mike had just dropped me off and I knew I would miss him and the cats something fierce all week.
Perhaps the other people in the terminal thought I was a bit odd as I unpacked my carry on bag to photograph my reading material; however, I would love to see what other people take on trips to read!!!! I finished Have You Found Her on the trip and it was riveting. I am going to pass it on to my friend Trish as it is right up her alley. I am currently reading Nineteen Minutes and it is a great read; can't put it down!
Here is a photo of my Dad and I when we were out running errands and driving around Bainbridge Island taking in all the beauty.
I ended up watching Masterpiece Theater last Sunday night with Mary. Cranford is the title of the current little mini-series. IT WAS SO TOTALLY FANTASTIC~ It is set in the 1850's in a small town in England and it is riveting and delightful. If you get a chance, please do watch it.
Drinks, snacks and crossword puzzles.....that is how we spent some of our time.
The local grocery store, Town and Country, always has gorgeous flowers......
On Tuesday we went out for a little sailing trip on my Dad's boat.....It was a bit cold and rainy but we had fun. We brought a little picnic lunch on board and had fun setting that up with some nice linens and cute plastic plates...
Here is a view from our boat, Widgeon, out to where the ferry from Seattle is coming in.
Here is Mary. She did a superb job of taking the boat out of the slip and into the harbor. It is a feat that I would not be able to accomplish and she did it very calmly.
More pics to come! Glad to be back to check out everyone's blog, but would like to remain in this permanent state of relaxation and constant state of having fun!
