this is not usual as we live so close to Juan de Fuca Strait and the winds blow more often than not.
Clover Point is the perfect kite flying area...
there are few overhead wires to get the kite strings snarled.
Lounging and sipping a glass of something cool and refreshing...
soaking up the warmth of the sun.
Enjoying an al fresco meal overlooking the Humble Bungalow Garden.
Grammy's got a vintage watering can and Isla has a new pink one.
She has almost outgrown this slide...
hope that Henry will have some fun with this soon.
I scrubbed the pool clean earlier in the day and filled it with tap water that was warmed by the sun and it was like bathwater by the time we were ready to splash...and splash we did!
Grammy was prepared and dressed for the occasion...wearing a casual cotton skirt and top with flip flops.
There were big jumps..."the biggest jumps EVER Grammy."
Swimming and splashing until the pool was shaded by the trees and then it was time to towel off and get changed for dinner.
We served BBQ'd salmon, stuffed eggs, tomatoes with mint, coleslaw, Greek and green salad with buns.
Dessert was angel food cake, strawberries and whipped cream.
The house is quiet now...
The sounds of family ~ chatter and children really contribute to make a home feel full.
Our house guest has arrived and I will be kept busy as I take my Hostess role seriously!
I have some adventures planned and there will be conversations over a glass of wine later in the evening.
See you in a few days...
