Top O' The Hill

We are invited to dinner at the home of Randy and Ida of Adventurer, and are really intrigued as we make our way there.  Randy gives us turn by turn by turn directions, and says, "Then you just go up the hill."

Well, we go up the hill at every turn, and we must be on one of the highest points in Anacortes, as we have a very nice view of the Guemes Channel.

Why do I not have a photo of that view?  Because I am too busy capturing everything else!

The flowers in the landscaping are so beautiful.

Then as we look up, we see Randy on the deck, and the aroma tells us he is grilling something wonderful.

Wonderful, indeed!  Shrimp, perfect shrimp!

As we look down from the porch onto the secluded yard, I am in awe of a lilac bush.

Robins are nesting in the eave of the porch, and I give them their privacy.

And there's more!

Ida adds just the right dishes to compliment the shish kabobs for a great dining experience.

We reminisce about the time last year when Randy pulled Jake from the marina water, after he slipped off the dock at Kingston.

He gives Jake a fond Goodnight pet.
