It has been rather overcast, alternately blustery, and very muggy, but not hot here by the ocean. Many days, the ocean view looks like this for half the day:
Not much definition between sea and sky, though those tiny specks who are surfers don't care, and you'd never know there were four islands 10 miles or so off this coast either. However, I don't think our guests who are due to arrive tomorrow will mind--they have been baking in Arizona temps over 100 degrees. Our guests are an old friend who is bringing his second wife and daughter, whom we have never met; the wife and daughter are Russian, and the family spent 30 hours traveling from their home near Moscow to visit our friend's family in the states. So we have rushed to finish painting the upstairs and get our makeshift guest room ready for them. I hope to have some quilty content to post at some point in the near future. But in the meantime, Dr. P has asked me to continue working until everything is ready to go...so my summer vacation will be put off at least another week. Back soon!
