My first Memorial Day Weekend on Lopez Island is marked mainly by the quiet and calm as compared to the usual mainland activities and crowds.
Finding treasures from local artists at the Farmers Market (photos below - the crocheted mat is mine)
- There was absolutely no way I could walk away from this teapot!!
Lunching at the Fountain
Viewing new birds at the feeder
Enjoying our Baha'i study group
Weaving everyday while listening to the birds
Soaking in the sunshine on the deck
Listening to the softly falling rain
While I'm not home to put flowers on my family's graves, I can say prayers for the departed. The peace and tranquility here is certainly not taken for granted - not for a moment.
