#1 Garden in the Universe

“Mom, Dad – This is the most amazing garden in the universe. There is no way aliens could make a garden this beautiful.” – Henry Fry as he walked through The Butchart Gardens on Sunday, April 28, 2013.



Weekend getaway

We had a wonderful, rejuvenating weekend on Lopez. Everybody got naps, and I got in a nice bike ride around the South end of the island. The corner grocery down the road has new owners, who opened a little restaurant –  where we had lunch today. Now they just need their liquor license,  and things will be complete. No one wanted to leave when it was time to catch the ferry home.  That’s the sign of a good weekend. And the first step in missing a ferry.
