More from Cape Cod

Another marsh river view. One night I awoke around midnight. The tide was high and the moon lit the marsh river. The water looked like silver. A magical site.

I wandered through the fairy garden created by my friend D.

Well, this is an angel greeting you as you enter the garden.

Gorgeous orchid inside the house. Must be just the right atmosphere for orchids. Mine always died.

One of the cats I catsat for. I think this is Romeo. The other is Juliet. He had the amazing habit of sleeping on his back with his rear legs up in the air. so funny.

So much slow time to contemplate, sleep and dream. My friend D and M and I walked the beach on my first day there. Then D. flew off to England. In fact rather near Devon!! D. treated me to dinner at a very sweet and expensive restaurant by the beach. What kind and dear friends I have.

How nice you got to relax. I thought you went for company too. Did you see many people? Did you get to bring much back from your storage unit you have been missing?
Love the Angel in the garden. How pretty she is. and Romeo is such a pretty color and so cuddly looking.
Did everyone do alright while you were gone?

Oh Suki, what a wonderful time you must have had. I love looking at your pictures and reading about your trip. Good for you, girl!

The marsh is so wonderful, I would cat-sit for those friends any day. That is a wonderful angel in the garden - I feel that you have done some soul replenishing while you were away from NH.

hi la maldita. Thanks for stopping by. I checked out your blog but can't read it. My brother has a friend who lives in Chile. Be well, Suki

Yes, human being. I had a good rest, I was so tired. And the beauty there plus my friends was renewing to my spirit.

Cris, I saw a few friends. Some others i wanted to see were tied up. People are so busy nowadays and if you aren't around to fit into their schedule it is hard to get together sometimes. Still I felt I saw enough people, interspersed with resting. A good balance. Mom did quite well, we set up a woman to come in each day for two hours. That worked out. SIL however is not doing well. Heartwrenching. Thanks for asking. I was going to do a storage unit post soon.

Katie Jane, it is good to create away trips for myself. Something I dont do enough of.

Mim, it was a good trip for my soul and spirit and wonderful to have friends treat me special as I hope I too treated them.

Glad you had time to rest and mediitate......
I think this must be Juliet. Stripes with red and white (3 colors) must be a girl......
But however he or she looks cute. It is so relaxing watching cats sleep.
My Troelie also sleeps with her legs up. I have a very silly picture of her like that. I will show it once.
Beautiful orchid, I'm terrible with plants inside :( I have orchids but they won't survive long here.
Glad you had such a nice time , you deserve it!
Hug from me

Thanks Marianne. I didnt know that about cat colors. Yes, it was heaven to be there. my orchids all die too. It must be the room temp and moisture and also the light. These get an east light.
