Last Day

Wooded Sunset

Today, is our last day at the cabin. Tomorrow, we head home to the Lou. We have been gone a long while. For Anne, since late April, when we both flew out to California together. We got to see my dad and brother Chris there. A call from Harry changed all that. I touched base back home for a few days after we both flew back, Anne back to Detroit and me back home. Eventually, I got the RAV4 back from the shop and the next day, I headed out of town again. In Ann Arbor, we stayed in the same hospital that Harry had been in. After a week, it seemed that he was on the mend. Then it was east to New York, where we attended Maren’s first baby shower. Jay stepped up to the plate, while we were out of town. We turned around and headed west from Geneva. We stopped in Rochester, where we had dinner with Bob and Noreen. Our other friends there, Alice and Chris, flew all the way from Japan just to see us. I thought that that was rather nice of them, especially since we were going to sleep in their house. After that one-night layover, we headed west some more and stayed a couple of nights in Toronto, where we ate well and saw the Royal Ontario Museum. Back in Ann Arbor it was quite clear that Harry was restive under the tender ministrations of his three daughters. We toughed it out and stayed with him until the weather up north seemed to warmup. It was warm the day that we arrived at the cabin but turned cold again, freezing cold. Only now when we must leave the cabin is it warming up again. We got to see the fiber arts exhibit at the Alberta House that Anne wanted to see. Sort of the whole reason for coming north this early. Anne and Bill arrived next door. They got their highspeed internet installed. Something that there were also signs of progress on for this cabin too. They got their water pump repaired and considering that their well is contemporary with this cabin’s well, is something we should be looking forward to also. Anne and Bill treated us to a lovely dinner last night, where I took this post’s photo, something that we will repay them for when we return here. We are leaving the cabin but are already looking forward to returning later this summer.
