Isolation Antidotes (43): Sweet Summer Sunset

Seven years ago today we were, as usual at this time of year, at our cabin in northern Minnesota. It had been a very lovely day, and our daughter Batty was there for a visit. As the day drew to a close, we went for an evening paddle in our new canoe (which we have brought with us to New Zealand). Although we are very grateful to be here, we are having very nostalgic thoughts of memories there.

  1. When/why did your daughter move to New Zealand?

    Beautiful scene, Gary. It is easy to see how it brings back so many memories, especially with the current crisis.

    When looking at this photo with its serene sunset atmosphere, I can understand your nostalgic feelings about your distant Minnesota.

    It looks as though there might have been someone astern both paddling and photographing — what a lovely, quiet image.

  5. Great memory, Gary. So peaceful and lovely, I think we’d all like to be there.

      We try very hard not to let it get us down, and it helps a great deal that all of the immediate family is here–and that general conditions are as good as they could possibly be. Yes, we miss that, but we are so grateful to be here and secure and among our most loved ones.
