What you can expect on Ocean: four days of photos and not much else.

There comes a time when you cannot put together a credible story. There are two few minutes in a day. I have mornings with Snowdrop and now, as of today, a multi-day reunion with my best of friends of many decades. And so you just get photos.

Morning walk: you have to give credit to what blooms inbetween the big seasons:

The cheepers follow.

An interesting sunrise...

Snowdrop, after morning bath. So... are we going out?

No? Well fine.

Maybe now?

We do go out. For a walk. And it includes a coffee shop break with mommy.

A rush then. To the store. Home. Water plants. Bake rhubarb cake. Cook dinner. We have guests tonight! (And tomorrow and the next day and the next day...)

And then the storms come and I sort of notice, but not really. Funny how an evening of camaraderie can push the weather to the sidelines.

Goodnight, goodnight. Until tomorrow's photo post!


  1. so wonderful to be here...fabulous food, as always, and so much to catch up on!!!

  2. Snowdrop's face and arms tell her story so clearly! Enjoy your friends!

  3. Enjoy your time with friends!
    It's just the right time of year for enjoying the walking & talking, the sitting & talking, the wine and brilliant conversation :)


I welcome comments, but I will not publish submissions that insult or demean, or that are posted anonymously. I am sorry to lose commenting Ocean friends who are not registered, but I want to encourage readers to submit remarks only if they feel they can stand behind their words. I do not seek a free-for-all here. I like camaraderie far more than conflict.
