Happy Birthday Diane ~ May 19th

I'll be on a road trip in SE Oregon and off the grid for a week, so I wanted to post an early birthday wish to a late friend who always made me laugh out loud. Oh the stories we could tell: the day that 6 foot diameter kelp balls rolled up on Wrights Beach with live abalone attached after a huge storm, our Thanksgiving trip to Ashland or the trip to Hawaii when we found out that our airline had folded after we got there. Oh darn, we're stuck here for a few extra days!

For many years we collaborated with our friend Rosie to make the wreath for the Blessing of the Fleet at the annual Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival, a labor of love we truly enjoyed. Can you tell?

Diane ~ Me ~ Rosie

Here's to you Minkie, Happy Birthday
