Back on the left coast and delighted to be here! We arrived just in time to celebrate Independence Day with some of the family. But as usual I have no people pictures. Too busy catching up.
We're in full summer mode here -- it was hot on the Fourth -- and it is too dry, especially for the Pacific Northwest. Even so, many of the tiny yards here in our RV resort are full of seasonal color.
Today the weather is more like what we've looked forward to -- in the 70s with some sunshine. No matter what the temperature, we would be happy to be here where we can visit family and old friends.
But it is an added bonus to be able to open windows and turn off the AC.
And it was definitely an added bonus to see this Western Grebe family out on the Lake early this morning. Mother was taking turns giving her two babies a piggy-back ride. Highly cropped obviously -- I hope I'll be able to get a closer view before the little ones don't need her any more!
Thanks to all of the wonderful hosts. It's good to be back ... and to again have time to visit blog friends.
