Leaving Shoreline Village aboard the recently re-deployed...
...A&C Nepenthe! Welcome home Nepenthe!

We anchored off shore and Carol served up a feast fit for the finest cruise. Yum!

Carol, Alex

After we tootled around with the sails out, which is great good fun, we went back to the marina to enjoy the view and some delightful Happy Hour DOCKTAILS!

Happy 19th Birthday Gideon! These are Gideon's pictures I got off facebook, pictures he took of his dogs, Bagel and Marley, with his new graduation-gift camera. Good job Gideon! And the Thai food was delicious too.

Christa was over for lunch and a great visit - so nice to have her around! She's going back to Hawaii in a couple of days so luckily for me we found this time to get together.

This is Christa's picture from Lona and Hartley's balcony. AWEsome isn't it?!

Sister day today and as's an utterly adorable picture of Travis, Lainee, Cali, and Jack. AWW!

I picked up Lilly at her Fashion Camp where they are sewing clothes and doing shows - right up Lilly's alley! We had a picnic lunch at Wilderness Park and a little exploration walk and then both girls had art class. Summer is busy!
