Patti & Mike, the owners of Sun Pass are a very interesting couple. I asked about the quilts in our room and if they were hand made – it seems that Patti had purchased these in a quilt shop in Utah where the fabric and design was all individually selected. That prompted Patti to show me fabric composites made by the San Blas Indians near Panama and their basket weaving – the colors, stitching and even weaving demonstrates a real skill. They were at the San Blas Islands when they took a yacht through the Panama Canal. But I think this is all the tip of an iceberg of this enterprising couple – they have a yacht brokerage business in San Francisco in addition to this B&B, horse hotel and cattle ranch! With the cowboy theme throughout their home, I bet there are lots of stories the two can tell.
It was greatly appreciated when Patti offered fixings for a picnic lunch today and a suggestion as to where we might find a spot overlooking the lake to hang out and eat. There we were sitting on an old dried up log on Sun Notch overlooking the blue blue Crater Lake and the Phantom Ship, eating our grilled chicken sandwiches with mustard, tomato and lettuce with a pickle on the side. We could have gladly lingered there after talking with a couple from the Ashland area about living in Ashland and how the town of 20,000 and Medford of 90,000 was getting a bit too busy – their ears perked up when we told them we were going to be visiting friends tomorrow who moved from Montana to Medford this past year – they were thinking of moving to Montana!
It’s a darn good thing that we purchased our boat trip tickets yesterday because they’re completely booked for today
Now with my shoes off and the windows open looking at the cows and hearing their occasional moos, I am getting a real kick at reflecting on today and all those beautiful blue perspectives of Crater Lake.
