|Bumper crop of blueberries this year.|
Last week: My husband and I vacationed in Canada, mainly in the Canadian Rockies (Banff and Lake Louise.) We really had a wonderful vacation and the scenery was so LOVELY. We put over 1400 miles on the car for this round-trip and we still like each other after so much time together! I highly recommend it as a vacation destination.
Blueberries: We have the smallest, spindliest blueberry bush you have ever seen. In past years it has yielded maybe ten berries. Today, after we returned from the beach, I peeked at it and was shocked to see our bumper crop. (Pictured above.)
Books: I have found it hard to get any concerted reading time this past week on the road and vacationing, but my husband and I did listen to one and a half audiobooks enroute:
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn...a mystery about a married couple before and after she disappears and he is accused of murdering her. We had fun discussing what we thought would happen next. The audiobook was read by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne.
- Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: the Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis by Timothy Egan...a nonfiction book about a Seattle man who set about photographing Native American tribes in the early 1900s before their way of life was extinct. We are over 3/5th of our way through this fascinating book by one of our favorite authors. now that we are home from vacation, we will have to take turns finishing it up.

- Question: What is the title of a book that made you really want to visit where it was set?
- My answer: The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt is about Venice. I really wanted to visit that city before the book but was doubly interested in a visit after.
