after our backcountry days in the north cascades we spent a nice day with the kids and grandma--
i love these pictures of my mom with her "cane" found by the grandkids. she reminds me
of strega nona with her hood on. what a perfect day for a hot, comforting meal.
we walked slowly along the coast as the kids, grandma, and ceej hunted for creatures
left behind by the tide--they were most interested in dead crabs. ceej found a good-sized
dead crab, and the kids took turns examining it while trying to hide away their fear
that perhaps the crab wasn't dead, and could pinch them at any moment.
as we walked away from the ocean we noticed dolphins swimming and diving nearby.
loved watching their fins arch above the water. pretty amazing ocean.
