You are so lucky, and I'm happy you've had such a great time. I really enjoy all those hot fun photos, as we still have winter here, darn it. Also, I know your header photo isn't from Oregon, but every time I see it I'm reminded of my trip there a few years ago! We ran across an old boat skeleton! Great memories, thank you.

Love the olive trees - the simple fruit every growing season has allowed the tree to age with dignity, in root and shadow too!
