Yesterday evening while we were picking the raspberries, an old friend came for a little much needed attention.
Yes, It's Charlie Mewdini! After months penned up in quarantine, he has been set free! Naturally he came to find us. As we returned to the house, he ran and jumped on the table by the back door where his food dish always was. Yes, of course, I gave him a little treat. Then he made himself right at home.
It is good to see you, old friend.
Charlie will be back when we return home. After our early morning grocery shopping Thursday, we packed up and headed for Whidbey Island.
The lavender and the California poppies are in their full glory.
Tom flew our colors.
I went for three short walks, each time ending up on the beach.
Can you tell how much I need a haircut?
During our final walk in the evening, we enjoyed sitting on the beach to watch color in the clouds.
After low tide all day, the water began to fill the lagoon.
Day one of our little get away was a good one.
