Traveling Delights

We were blessed again to take our annual trip from Sandpoint to Lopez to Mazama and back this past weekend. It has become our family ritual, only each year, we seem to bring someone new along...a new kid, that is! It was a great trip for our foursome. All is well on the island and at the yurt -- the property holds such positive energy, the frogs sing as loudly as ever, the sun was shining brightly and Holly B's is still buttery and sweet! We got to take a few ventures out to the beach to throw rocks into the Sound, visited the Lopez Fire Station (twice) and did needed maintanence on the yurt. Our last night off island we visited dear friends in Mazama -- Julie, Susan, Travis and Jori -- and enjoyed the pleasures of two-mom time, a wonderful home cooked meal and an early morning bike ride (with kids!!!) to the Mazama store for early day treats! A perfect trip all around!
