Last day off this vacation. We have had candles burning all week to honor our loved ones who are no longer with us. The correct day to do this, I guess, is tomorrow, but since we are leaving tomorrow we will not have lights burning here when we are not still here.

Today I had a date with my second-cousin down by the sea. She brought some home made cinnamon buns with blueberries (yum) and a I brought a thermos with coffee and we had a lovely chat until it started to be too cold to sit outside. When I came back to the house my uncle was over for an afternoon coffee so then we had another nice chat. My mom had baked an apple pie – yum.

Last night in our paradise – I’m glad we could be here a whole week and spend some time together. Next visit will probably not be until Easter.
