When my Aunt Brenda was visiting from New Mexico, we took a little jaunt to Deception Pass State Park, one of the most beautiful places in Western Washington. I think my kids were born in the wrong era--they would have been perfectly happy living like nomads in the fresh air all the time. The weather was chilly, but we were blessed with delicious sunshine the entire time.
Ah, the glorious Pacific Northwest. How glad I am to finally be home again.
