Almost Over

Summer is almost over. In the last six months we traveled to North Carolina to visit my sister and brother-in-law and to Colorado to meet Julie's cousin, sister and spouses for an annual reunion. Julie's family visited twice and my daughter and grandsons came. Their visit included a trip to San Diego.

My son visited last week for seven days. On the first day we did some motorcycle maintenance and picked up a trailer load of materials. Later in the week we picked up a second trailer load of materials. It was work but it was enjoyable since we haven't worked together for many years.

Motorcycle Ride.
Riding near Flagstaff. (Larger version)

One of the most enjoyable things we did together was riding. As we stopped at a traffic signal he pulled up beside me and commented "It's enjoyable riding alone but it better to ride with someone." I agreed. Definitely, it was better.

The night before he left we sat on the deck in the dark talking. In many ways that was the best. No activity. No noise. No distractions. Just sitting and talking.

Summer is almost over but Julie and I are planning a four day road trip on the motorcycle through southern Utah for Labor Day weekend.

This has been the busiest summer that we've had in years but it's been good
