Entrancing entrance...

This summer Kate spent a couple of weeks house and cat-sitting for friends whose apartment shares this, the house-owner's entrance. These hats make me want to name the people who wear them. Any suggestions among real or fictional people? Jay Gatsby? Gene Kelly? Eliza Doolittle?

And look! Every time people come and go the game continues. Maybe I need to adjust my own entrance to include an adventure... you?

Rainy day in Speightstown, Barbados

Peter lives south of here in a place called Paynes Bay. Just last week I rode the coastal bus to Speightstown to wander these streets, visit galleries and have a great lunch on the beach. Yes, on a covered patio because the rains were as heavy as they were short. I spent a great time in Barbados with my grandsons and Peter and his friends. I met an artist named Bill Grace. It was a gallery with his work that helped attract me to Speightstown. Go here to see why:

I could do a whole 5 years of calendars with the orchid pix I took. I'll include some of them another time. This time I want you to enjoy a quiet day knowing the rain will cool you off and leave the world full of quiet reflections and the possibilities of distant horizons.
