There was time to paint.
And time to watch the birds. Yes, Mrs. Wren (aka Wrennie) has a nest in the B&B, we think. We've seen her in and out enough but no other signs of life, so we shall see!
I enjoyed a little theatre...
...and a little music on a riverboat (more on that later!).
We said a final farewell to a friend.
The memorial was held at the environmental center where he had been executive director and the setting couldn't have been more perfect.
After the memorial we enjoyed "outdoor food" (which was delicious) and wandered around the center. Rick took a canoe ride.
It was beastly hot but as we enjoyed the wildflowers and woods, we were all divinely content.
This beautiful tree was losing its blossoms and it felt like each fallen petal was a tear for John.
Then came Father's Day! As you probably know from the last post, Rick's son Kevin couldn't be here with our Baby Grand and Greg was away but Molly came with our special guy who has his grandpa wrapped around his finger!
We first enjoyed a nice brunch...
...then took a walk around the neighborhood.
The big deal of the day was when our little guy walked by the fire station around the corner. He became very interested in seeing what was behind the partially open door!
The wonderful people there, Cody and Erika, welcomed us and gave us all a bit of treat by inviting us in to see the trucks.
Some even got to sit in the truck!
Which was pretty cool!
And we were all enjoying our day!
But all that work can make a little guy tired.
So, it was back to a little grandpa time before hitting the road.
It's hot as all get out here. I'm not complaining, really. Observing. After the winter I said I wouldn't complain.
But I'm "observing" quite a bit today!
Let's just say I'm not quite "fresh as a daisy!"
