Just a couple of random photos. This is a stairway down a cliff that Chris and Jeff built for the people who live on the hillside. It's really neat looking up close.

Here's the pump where we get our water at the campground.

Some huge bundles of moss growing on the trees. There's a lot of moss here; makes the hillsides look so green.

And a correction: My friend, Joni, who I have coffee with every day, asked how long we were staying here. I stupidly replied: August 1! Well, that is wrong. We hope to stay until September 1 or thereabouts. Don't know how I moved up our departure date by a month! I won't be ready to leave by September, let alone August!

And one more thing. Daughter, Gail, is having surgery on Tuesday to attempt to repair some of
her damaged pancreas. She is having two cysts drained and stents put in. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I feel bad that I'm not there to help her out, but the doctor just finally scheduled the surgery and turns out it's now.

Just catching up on the past few days, loving your pictures. Everything is so green and beautiful. Walking up those hill steps would be quite the workout...geez! I'm out of breath just thinking about it. I'm so glad you are having a grand old time and eating lots of healthy fish - yum! Thank you for keeping us updated on your excursion, it's nice to see new places.

I'm loving this trip vicariously!! It's getting my all psyched up for when we hit the road NEXT summer. Have lots of fun, K?

man, I can not imagine building those steps...that is pretty awesome. I am so glad you are having a wonderful time, and no, you won't be ready to come home Sept at all. But you will know when the time is right. Enjoy every waking moment. Well enjoy the moment even if you aren't awake!! Take care dear friend.

Hi Mom,
Ben wanted to ask you a question. He wants to know if he can use your Wii character (on our Wii) for a big neighborhood Wii competition that he and neighbor JT are planning. :-)

Of course he can! You mean the coolest grandma one? You bet, and I'd better win too, Ben! Miss you!
