05 December 2008


I have much to be thankful for this season. I'm still in the Thanksgiving mood, even more than a week later. I continue to be impressed with the way President-elect Obama is thoughtfully putting together his team, fostering transparency in government, and soliciting input from the people. I love the way he's using a YouTube channel to keep people informed, and we can "join the discussion" and give our suggestions (which they take seriously) at Change.gov. Very interesting "Inside the Transition: Health Care" video, for example.

Well, enough politics. I'm also very thankful for the great time I had with my cousins over an extended Thanksgiving weekend. We had our turkey meal at Point Roberts and went for a hike down to the beach. There we saw these interesting rock formations.

Here we are playing a game of "Bananagrams" (aka Speed Scrabble) at Arbutus Cottage on Galiano Island.

An arbutus tree.

There's an awesome view behind the fog on the hike up to Bodega Ridge, honest.

beautiful photos, which I've already seen. re speed scrabble etc. rick and I used some of the same words (which we won't reprint here) in our scrabble games a couple of weeks ago, his apartment, NYC. He seemed surprised but I told him my inspiration and support was the girls' bananagrams game back in Nov.
