Closing out Summer

We have enjoyed being back home in the Pacific Northwest.

Lots of fun outings including a hike to and swim in Talapus Lake.
Nice, clear, alpine water

A mid-week hike with a friend to Source Lake.

A perfect weather kind of evening spent at Seattle Center listening to The Brite Futures. Rune is thinking he is going to be a drummer.

A VERY fun outing to Duthie Hill for some mountain biking.

And a bit of kayaking.

School starts in a week and life will be a little different for us, but we are looking forward to the fall.


Blow me to Bermuda

Bermuda is a beautiful place.

The beaches are lovely.
The water is warm.

And who knew a 5 year old could snorkel?
And LOVE it.

One of our new friends.

Scooting around the island was favorite. Oh- did I mention the Kerrs are living here for an indeterminate amount of time? So of course we had to come visit.

The island got a year's worth of rain while we were there, but it didn't stop the fun.

Old, unfinished church in St. George- in the rain, duh.
Heading out for very yummy, but stupid-expensive Indian food. (Everything is crazy expensive in Bermuda!)

All the houses/buildings are painted a bright color. Loved it.

Crystal Caves.

Rune and George of the Jungle.

What a cool place. So glad we got to visit the Kerrs during their Bermuda stint.
