Long overdue update

Sometimes life's pace challenges my ability to keep up.  I've been plenty busy, unfortunately not with my favorite endeavor, the Yonderosa.

My Grandmother is doing as well as can be expected.  She has not been able to return home but her ability to recover can never be underestimated.  She has exceeded my expectations and seems determined to improve, working hard on everything from physical therapy to eating.

On another unrelated note,  Spring is wakening here at our residence.  The leaves are breaking, the Indian Plum has bloomed and the Red Flowing Currant is putting on a spectacular display.  My favorite sign of Spring is the Whales.  We have resident Orca and Gray Whales but every year about this time the migratory Gray Whales show up in mass.  We had at least five down at our beach yesterday.  I tried to get some pictures as they come close into shore while feeding on shrimp.  Magnificent creatures.
