Here Today, Gone To…
“The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.”
– Mary Davis
I hope 2019 is off to a great start for you! I am so grateful to have been able to spend a week in Maui…relaxing, swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing and much eating, of course. I had never been to the island before but was wowed at first sight. I went with my friend, Alison, and then my friend, Nina, came over from the Big Island to join us for a few days.
Here are some snaps from our adventures:
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, by brother, George, his wife, Donna, and their eldest daughter, Laura, were on Sadie-duty.
Sadie injured her shoulder very badly in mid-January (in a big bark-off with dogs on the other side of a fence) and underwent “platelet replacement therapy” three days before I left for Maui. So no kennel for her! Thank goodness my family was able to care for her while I was away. Unfortunately, Sadie is still in pretty rough shape 🙁
We have now left Okotoks, AB and are heading back to Vancouver Island…very slowly!
