Good Morning and Happy Thankful Thursday! I'm so glad to be able to post; cell reception has been almost nil(I'm missing my girls and grands) but today we head back to Seattle and I'll be able to connect again. We have been having an amazing time!
My BFF from California-Barb is on the right. It has been so good to spend time together, it is almost like living next door to each other again. I am thankful for her friendship and love and time spent vacationing with them. I think this has been the best vacation yet!
I am thankful for my hubby's photography skills-he has an artist's eye just like his dad did. I am thankful for him.
I am thankful for the beauty of God's glorious creation. I am thankful for how He made us each different and unique. I am thankful that this trip has given my man such pleasure by being near the water and because I am such a country girl at heart, seeing wide open areas has blessed me as well.
Isn't this bay and the home beyond just breathtaking! If I could I would have a place like this for hubby and I-one that would meet those needs to be near the ocean and one that would meet my love of country.
Yesterday we went to Orcas Island Pottery and it was incredible. When I was in high school and college I love pottery and took many classes so this was quite fun for me. Oh the colors of the glazes were so vibrant and beautiful. They had many fun little outdoorsy gifts as well-the clams were just one expression. Aren't they fun!
This tree house was also on the property and reminded me of Swiss Family Robinson; knew our two grandsons would love it. They are planning on building a fort in their yard and if they had some huge trees I could picture them wanting this type of fort.

We've had lovely weather but it rained during the night and this morning is drizzly. Hopefully Seattle will be nice as well.
Hugs and love, Noreen
