And, still, life is good here.
Yesterday, a hike in the woods. Trees too big to wrap my arms around. Ferns and wildflowers. Waterfalls. Thousands of salmon fighting their way upstream to spawn. (Squint at the pic, there are a few to be seen.)
Watching overfed, lazy black bears fish in the river. I feel like I'm living in a nature documentary.
The only solution, as far as I can see, to the homesickness is for you to come visit. We'll be waiting for you :)
