Paula and I had been trying to get together with our husbands for several weeks. Yesterday Paula and Dave drove over in their brand new Salsa Red Camry to give us a ride. What a comfy car! We drove about 10 minutes to show them one of our favorite places--Bluff Lake. We walked among the sunlit grasses and seed pods, scoured the now-dry lake bottom for animal tracks, tried to guess the owners of various tree-top twig and leaf nests. We stayed until the sun was amost set. The caretaker closed the gate behind us and we drove home to continue our conversations accompanied by two bottles of wine, smoked salmon, cheese and crackers. After about two hours and needing some "real" food we went to our neighborhood Pei Wei for great asian food.
A perfect Saturday and a fitting first entry for my new blog, Connections.
