The full moon. I snapped this picture on the first night V was here. We were sitting on my patio, drinking wine and talking. What a beautiful evening.
This visit was so wonderful. Much different than his first trip out here. We were much more relaxed and we did many fun and just plain "everyday" kind of things.
We went to the park and walked. We went to the bookstore, browsed, picked out books and then had coffees. We cooked great dinners. Ate sushi for lunch. Grilled fish. Sat on the deck in the mid-afternoon and shared cold white wine. Took naps. Went to the zoo. And had dinner at a portable table in front of the television while watching a pay per view movie. Oh and talked and talked and talked. It was a lovely few days.
I am going to Seattle to visit with him in late September and he will be here for Thanksgiving. It is such an amazing time. Just one step at a time and with the knowledge that we are friends first. What a blessing.
