Leaving tomorrow for South India! So exciting, so many odds and ends to tend to before departure. March has been a lion all month. Seattle is beautifully in spring bloom. Cherry blossoms and forsythia tenaciously hang on while high winds howled yesterday. Bone chilling rain manages to soak through the driest of boots. And now, the sun illuminates my computer screen.
It’s been quite a dramatic spring. However, after a long long flight tomorrow, with me wearing old-lady compression knee-high socks so my feet won’t swell, I will arrive in S India. Summer will greet me, along with all the beauty and chaos that is India. And I can’t wait!
Meanwhile, I sneaked in a quick trip to Vancouver for a sweet short visit with friends. I wish I could have fit in more time to visit all my Vancouver friends. I was whisked away to a “chateau” (my friends’ home where the hospitality really did allow me to feel comfortable and coddled as if within the luxury of a fine chateau) and enjoyed a few precious days with friends.
Below are some photos from the wild-weather weekend. Even though it was stormy, we still managed to fit in a walk. The wind and rain kindly held off while we walked and the rain recommenced as we enjoyed a cup of coffee.
