Just to let everyone know I am home. I did fly home from Santa Barbara almost two weeks ago. Since then I have been to Victoria and Kamloops.

I always have big hopes of organizing my closets and cupboards, but as August winds down, I see no plans to clean etc.

The last few weeks will be spent with friends and family as well as teaching a two day course on writing.

But back to Santa Barbara. It was a good two week holiday. The weather was never really hot and the mornings were really quite cool as were the evenings. In fact it was hotter in Vancouver. However, we did do a few beach days.

We only encountered one poor meal. And it was more the surroundings that were not to our taste. We enjoyed the different wines we tried. Due to our rather full suitcases, we drank all the wine rather than trying to pack it.

The one thing that stands out in my memory of this trip is the overwhelming helpfulness of everyone. Everyone we encountered was friendly. This was evident when our plane from Santa Barbara was delayed and the airline staff worked hard to get us to San Francisco to catch our plane home. They did.

Writing a blog takes work. I am sure I will look back at it with fond memories, not the writing but the re-reading of it. I remember my travels at an early age with my parents and my mom writing in her journal every night. She would write some and tape pictures and even put packs of sugar on the pages. Even on our trip last week, she took her journal to write about the day's events. However, we were far to busy laughing to take time to write. I hope at almost 92, I am still wanting to write and share my memories.
