What a beautiful day it’s been on the island! Temps in the upper 6o’s and no rain!
After a lazy morning, with breakfast at 10 a.m., Cathie and I headed off to the fort for a little shopping for their grandchildren. Ted was working today from 12-4, and Charlie stayed home to read. We went straight to Sutter’s Store because Cathie wanted to have a flag flown over the fort for her grandson (like we did for Matthew last year). The fort will do that even if the child is not here and will give the flag and a certificate stating the flag was flown in the child’s honor on whatever date. They plan to fly the flag on Monday and then call us to come pick it up.
Cathie ended up buying a “few” more things for the grandbabies, and then we headed home, taking a few shortcuts through the woods because Cathie is a confirmed woodaholic – anything that has “trees and plants and ground cover and birds and rocks and . . . .” – well, you get the picture – she loves the woods!
Charlie joined us at the Carriage Museum at Surrey Ridge for lunch, and we had an opportunity to take the back-half of a carriage tour. Neither Cathie nor Charlie had made it to Arch Rock last summer, and that landmark is on this tour.
After our tour and after Ted got home, we had dinner and spent another evening simply talking to each other. No radio, no TV programs – just four adults having conversation about dozens of topics. Such a wonderful evening on the island.
It’s been a great week, and I’ll see you back here Saturday and Sunday mornings with a few pics, then on Monday morning for the next full-length blog. Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend – stay safe, stay well, and God bless.
