Well, I certainly never expected such a perfect afternoon today . . . . we had scouted out possible picnic spots on Saturday and decided on Morris Cove, about 6 0r 7 miles east of town, as far east as you can drive on the island. We figured the last two miles of road was bad enough to keep everyone with no 4WD and lots of ground clearance away but it isn't exactly a secret spot so we figured we'd be sharing the beach with at least a few other groups enjoying the day.
What we found is what you see above - the top photo shows Morris Cove as we top the hill and begin dropping down towards the beach. The other three shots were taken from our picnic spot by just turning around - behind us were some wild horses grazing, and on either side was pure solitude. We beachcombed for a few hours then cooked hotdogs on our portable grill along with fruit salad and pasta salad. A winter's worth of driftwood accumulation made a bonfire a no-brainer and we sat with our backs against that loveseat shaped log and watched the sun on the water and talked about how lucky we are to be in such a place on such a day . . . . . hope everyone's Memorial Day was equally relaxing - Dad, good to talk with you, and Trevor and Megan!!! I got the message on the recorder when we got home! Sooooo, I've got another grand daughter?! I told you it was going to be a girl!! Congrats and love from Alaska, I'll call you tonight . . . .
