we've been away, first on a camping trip, then home, but feeling kind of isolated without any internet service here for the last few days! luckily the problem was resolved this morning. chuck will be glad to know when he returns, though, at the moment he is on a mountain climbing expedition to ecuador, so i am happy for both of us! thank you so much for the letters and messages regarding my daughter and son who live in nyc. they fared well, staying indoors, thank goodness. we wish everyone to be safe and recover soon from this huge storm.
we had arrived home from our trip (where cell phones and internet don't go) to learn of hurricane sandy bearing down on the east coast. i also came home to spam here. too much to be reasonable, even though google filters do a good job of catching it. i'm sorry to have had to turn on comment moderator. if anyone knows of a better way, please do let me know.
feeling a bit guilt while writing this camping post, while a large part of the country was being battered by weather, we were doing this...
thank you regal raven!
back on the beach
at camp, i watched and waited for the island fox to appear. chuck told me they often do, poking around, bold and playful...
a sweet black phoebe, love their song
with a twisted rib
he gave me gifts too
p.s. kids, we missed you and wished you were there!
