Ilwaco Saturday Market

I wanted most of all to have a day at home.  Allan helped by going to the Saturday market to take some photos.  I sent with him a small bouquet for Salt Hotel.

The rain had not been enough to quench the needs of the garden, and it did not take long to dip all these out and give drinks to thirsty plants.  Still, it was satisfying.  I hooked up a siphon hose and drained some rain water into the water boxes to refresh the tadpoles’ home.

I was resting up because we would have to get up VERY early tomorrow to go to Pam’s lecture and tour of the Seaside gardens.

…in the ridiculously early morning

We got up at six in order to leave early enough to get to Cannon Beach at eight for Pam’s lecture.  Because of my night owl wiring, I couldn’t get to sleep early, even though I tried, so when we arose I’d had three hours of sleep.  And yet, I was able to appreciate the light on the garden, an early light that I so rarely see.

on our way

I texted Nancy to say “We’re on the road. It’s a miracle!”, and she texted back “We are leaving in two minutes, also a miracle!” A text came from Todd:  “On the backroad, singing Rise and Shine.”  Melissa and Dave had been in Portland and were driving west to join us, and Steve and John were on their way from the bay, all converging on Seaside for Pam’s garden tour.
