The Leaves, They Are A'Falling

Almost all the leaves are down and we've mulched the garden with several barrel-fulls of poplar leaves. However, these fiery fall colors come from a tree on the Seattle Pacific University campus. Anna and I visited last month, since she's not yet sure where she wants to attend college. Other options include California or Florida, but I'm not sure how many out of state visits are in the budget.

Murphy loves having a front lawn again! Every time we come back from a walk, he rubs his face in the grass and then rolls around in the soft green.

Cinque Terre

Looking back at photos from March 2008, I realized didn't really post any from our Italian trip to Cinque Terre. Jeff and I hiked between the five cities--all built on cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean and connected by walking trails. We stayed in the middle city, Vernazza, in a small B&B. I ate fresh calamari at least four times! Lots of fish, pesto, and good wine, as you might imagine.
