We left the bikes parked today and had a quiet day. We went to church (Beth joined Jeanie in the summer choir), caught up on some correspondence, and just chilled out. Jeanie and Lisa’s house has a yard that extends into a thicket and opens up to a shaded, walled patio beneath the pines — a great place to enjoy the quiet and a few birds chattering. The landlord, who lives in the garage apartment, has a couple of miniature poodles – Roxie and Tyrone, who are happy to sit in your lap when they are not joining the other neighbor dogs in “conversation”.
This is dinner on the deck with Lisa and Jeanie.
Tomorrow we head to Santa Fe and the start of the convention.
