Could my life be any better?

We live in such an incredibly beautiful area. There's nothing on TV tonight and I didn't feel like watching our Netflix rental. So we got Starbucks and went down to the waterfront to watch the sunset. Even the smoke from the pulp mill looked beautiful.

We ran into some tourists from Colorado and gave them tips on what to see as they continue north to Portland.

We did it again

Okay, we're legal.

Been busy since the ceremony showing our only out-of-town guest around the area. We are taking the left-over cake to church in the morning.

Adventures in Kansas-Citting

Well, we're home. Technically we've been home since Wednesday, but I just haven't felt a call to blog. The trip was nice. We got out of here just as the smoke from the wildfires was settling in along the coast, so I got to trade that allergen for all the ones the Midwest produces in summer. Singulair + Claritin = good!

Not much to say. Here are some photos instead:

A festive Fourth

Today, I am an American. I woke up this morning, found the only short-sleeved shirt in my wardrobe that combines the colors red, white and blue (a freebie from our Hawaiian vacation, as it turns out, with the words "Big Kahuna" all over it), put on a baseball cap with the Stars & Stripes on it, got in the car and drove two and a half hours to a small-town parade (inland, where the wildfires are still en fuego). After the return trip, I took a nap, ate a hamburger, talked to the neighbors, and then went to see fireworks.

There's no ground fog here where we live, but the marine layer is pretty low over the water where the fireworks display takes place. So we basically spent twenty minutes staring at a very noisy color-tinted cloud that occasionally threw off some sparks. At least it wasn't as cold as it's been in past years.
