Did I tell you my parents adopted a new furry friend named Fairbanks? He's a pretty cute goldendoodle puppy. Pete likes him. He likes Pete. They snuggle well in the car on the way back from the beach.
Despite my dayquil/nyquil regimen & internal funk I was ecstatic to see that Peonies were still blooming in the mountains. Pete was jazzed about rock-climbing. For fabulous pics of this adventure, please visit Laura's blog. They put my grainy cell phone photos to shame.
There is absolutely nothing better than the back deck in the high country on an early summer's evening.
