Visit with niece and nephew in Denver. Explored the city, it’s growing green economy, great meals with Kara and Like. Botanical gardens and most spectacularly the Red Rock amphitheater and surrounding area.
Dave posted a photo on Facebook causing 2 friends and a cousin to invite us to visit. Crazy. We have to come back for a longer visit.

Rice fields near Sacramento. Someone needs to tell them there is a drought and rice requires lots of water.
Parked truck at brother-in-laws’ wrecking yard. Subway in Sacramento

Tacos with friends at Los Gallitos.
Spam for Jan.
Fritzie’s benches.
Eucalyptus tree outside Marin General.

Paddle boarding is peaceful on a calm lake. The cumulous clouds reflect on the water. Good quads and core workout.
Minneapolis airport definitely has marketing skills. Device chargers, tables with i pads (to order food or surf the web) AT the gate. Uptown.
1933 fire damaged cottage during rebuild. We salvaged enough thick redwood siding to side 3 sides. The back will be new rough 1x 12 boards.
