Quiet Memories

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.
