The last gasp of summer

Dianne had a couple of days before flying out, and I wanted us to take a bike ride, and paddle the kayaks, and go sailing, and go have my favorite spinach and feta omelets at Mirage, and play Scrabbble... as a wise man once told me: you can do it all, but you can't do it all at the same time!

We played Scrabble, we went out for omelets, and we went sailing. Dianne had never been on a sailboat, so this was a good choice. Erika, Bill and I did all the work and Dianne and Toby got in a snuggle before her trip was done. It was a lovely day out on the lake--enough wind to sail but not enough to scare the novice!

A good time was had by all.
Monday morning Bill, Dianne and I went to the bakery to bond with the boys and tell stupid bike stories. D and I got in 2 quick games of Scrabble and I took her to the airport. It had started to rain by then, but that fit into our plan just fine--great weather on the bike trip and on the lake. Can't ask for more than that!
