Even on a stormy summer day like yesterday the sun can come through at the end to throw a little shimmer on the downtown buildings. I was walking down a steep street on the southeast of Queen Anne looking southwest when I took in this view.
I want to thank regular visitors to SDP for their patience recently while we were away, and I will try to catch up on my visits to the other CDPBlogs. I had intermittent luck in finding internet cafes to upload posts and hadn't the time to mass upload scheduled ones. I couldn't pack the camera to take vacation shots for you either, so you'll have to take my word for it how I got a tan along the way. I dipped my toes in the ocean at Huntington Beach and fell asleep in the warm sun, rode one too many roller coasters with shrieking kids, enjoyed my mother-in-law's hospitality and toured her workplace in Irvine, visited good friends in San Diego and saw CCT's production of a new musical called "Alice" that I swear you will see on Broadway, it was THAT good. We took the trolley from Old Town SD to cross the border and eat tacos in Tijuana, drove to the furthest eastern point of California's Mojave Desert and floated my mother's ashes to rest in front of her home on the Colorado River, and enjoyed a lovely time of remembrance with her many friends before flying home. Many thanks to you all again for your kind expressions of sympathy!
