from vacation wonderland to leisure town
wow, it's hard to top a week with great friends in a house on a river. seven days of lazing about, talking, kayaking and, truth be told, some good old drinking. today we said goodbye to mike, will and jesse and continued on to jayne and tim's house in sacramento for the next few days.
we'll be taking care of some last minute shopping needs to prepare for flying out of town on monday. one week "on the road" has made clear our need for larger day packs... i think one of the packs we left with is ten years old now and will barely survive another flight. best to take care of that kind of thing right now. hello REI.
we made some great dinners, enjoyed the slow summer transition from day to night from the fine deck overlooking the river, played 'catchphrase' until 2:00am, played guitars, played ukulele, traded stories but, sadly, it all came to an end in monte rio, ca "vacation wonderland" here at the holey cow diner. thanks guys!
now we find ourselves heading further down...
