Dear Lyvernia - We are really enjoying this sunny warm climate.  The boys are getting brown.  The surf came right up to our cottage.  I flew around the island. (My first time to fly.)  There are 3 other couples from B.C. staying here.  Bye-for-now.  See you soon.  Miriam.

Dear Dan, It sure was good that you came to the cottage!  Hope your drive & flight were o.k.  Good visit with Sylvia, & Mary & Warren in Iowa.  Good museum - covers "the West" - & also fur trading in other places (NW, Alaska, American colonies, etc.)  We've been consumed by mosquitoes.  Love, Mom.
