      Oh girl, it was!! And these photos don’t even show all the other lovely experiences like a crystal clear night sky, with millions of stars scattered overhead; falling asleep in a tent to the sound of the pounding surf; spotting lots of dolphins, seals and pelicans; and eating ourselves sick on gooey s’morey goodness….
      There were some camping fails too like wet matches in the morning and rowdy neighbors singing in the night, but all and all…so fun!! Next year dear friend, next year.

    Hey, if you tell me you took all these sweet, terrific looking photos with a TELEPHONE, I might as well start a campfire and throw my camera right in.

    Um…Dad….sizzle, sizzle.
    Yes they were all taken with our “phones” (or hand-held technological devices if that makes you feel better). I got some pretty soothing, meditative video footage of the waves with my phone too for some future wintery day’s enjoyment. Glad you like the pictures, there were SO many to choose from, about 10,000 of the glorious sunsets for starters!

    Manresa is one of my most favorite places on earth. So many good memories… ready to go back. Been way too long… Thx for the beautiful reminders.

    Hi Jo Ann! I’m so glad you get to see our pictures here…it’s like the letter I always mean to write to you but never do. I felt so lucky to be with Maceo and his friend this weekend, especially around the campfire after dark, listening to them talk. They are so insightful and pragmatic about the state of the world, but somehow still hopeful and positive about their futures. The best is yet to come! Sweet memories indeed.
