Summer Flashbacks #1

Since I missed the entire summer of blogging, and since this is basically our family's memory book, we decided to simply go back and document some highlights.

As always, most of our summers are spent at one body of water or another in or near Port Townsend. My favorite and Dale's favorite is North Beach and Sojo's favorite is the bunker beach because of the bunkers themselves and the big rocks for bouldering. North Beach is the sunset beach and the best for combing for sea glass.

This summer, we added a new beach activity when Jared and Cheng-Wei brought up their metal detector. Even though this one was powerful and fancy, we still only found a rusty pipe and some pop-tops.


We also ventured out to Crater Lake when Matt and Cathy came up to visit and wound up getting my very favorite family photo of the summer. Scratch that--maybe of all time. We caught ourselves mid-laugh, and I love everything about this. 


Another thing I love about summers is that we always spend good, quality time with Matt and Cathy. It's gorgeous to watch Sojo grow and have more meaningful interactions with family members. 


We made it a point to leave the house to watch the sunset more often this past summer. It's a bit tough because the sun doesn't go down until about 9:30 and everyone is in a relaxing zone by then. One night, we decided last-minute to go and some of us even went in pajamas. We arrived at North Beach to find gaggles of people also there for the view, some drinking wine and having dinner. We're going to have to get there more often next summer.
