Returning after a brief time away
It's nice to be back at home after four days away. Thursday we spent taking the ferry over and then going up to the university for the grad ceremony. It was hot, hot, hot but still lovely. Then we went out for a celebratory dinner with our Mexican friends. On Friday I spent a couple hours at the Van Dusen Gardens (a beautiful and inspiring spot) and then we changed gears and drove out to Cloverdale to the flyball tournament. Two fun and busy days of racing and camping out with the team. Tonight we managed to get the 5:00 ferry and got home in time to unpack our stuff from the motor home and clean up a bit. Bliss to sink into a bath after two nights camping. The front garden is still waiting for another truckload of soil and then we'll be planting this week. I can't post any pictures from the weekend as my my camera cord isn't here, so I'm giving you a photo of those beautiful California poppies that grow in profusion here this time of year. Don't you just love the way the light shines through the overlapping petals?
