Vacation time is near.

It is 9:00 am and only 98 degrees here in Henderson, Nevada. I have already started to pack as we will leave in 10 days for the cool, green, natural Bowen Island. The picture of trees growing like weeds, deer grazing in the front yard and eagles soaring overhead draws me on a daily basis to wish for the day to arrive quickly.
Akira loves the freedom of being at the cabin. I do too. It is another world that we deeply appreciate especially in contrast to the pavement, heat, and strip malls of Henderson.
