A little excursion

While my 91-year-old dad is sheltering in place with my sister about 30 miles away, his mountain cabin is sitting empty. A trusted neighbor keeps his eye on the property, but because we live only about a 15-to-20-minute drive from the cabin, we decided to take a little trip over just to check on things. Other than going out to get groceries and prescriptions, this was our first excursion anywhere in several weeks.

It was a lovely drive on a warm, sunny day, and all was well at the cabin, inside and out. Dad’s rhododendrons were particularly glorious. I didn’t have my camera with me, so the photos don’t do them justice…

    1. Thank you! I lived in Australia for a year, a long time ago, and remember well the seasons being opposite ours here.
