In the midst of July and a coolness in the air. Repeat, a coolness in the air. Snorkeling in the morning, instead of bathtubishly warm water, there was refreshment and a sense of 'almostalmost' too cool. Laugh if you will, we get cold easily here. But in July? It was a gift of a day. All day and into the evening, the 12th of July. Gift Day.
Zach is back from holiday and back to cooking up yum. At 12 sharp the place was almost full, a testimony to good eats. And good drinks. None of us were feeling alcoholically inclined, instead re-visiting another addiction, Zach's hibiscus tea. This tea is so delicious and so pretty that overdosing is not only possible, but likely. Just so you know; fair warning and all that. No photo, it would have been like trying to capture a beautiful stained glass window, it works, but it's not the same without tasting it. Um...the tea, not a stained glass window. That would be silly.
Friday usually means music at Dinghy Dock, with 2 Doug's and a Mariel. We got a special treat yesterday when Wiki joined them for a couple of tunes, his conga beat and grin spot on, as if they'd been collaborating for ages. Which, in the world of musicians, they have. I had a few flash memories of musician friends meeting each other, sitting down and...oops, I digress.
|Good good good good vibrations (no, they don't sing that song)|
In the midst of good came a big surprise of wowwowwow good. I was sitting on the steps when a man turned to me with a smile and after the first split second of who? I'd leapt up and clamped on in hugging a friend that I thought I'd never see again. A health journey that had pretty much every complication possible had landed him on the living side, despite a Jimmy the Greek 1000000000 to 1 odds. Sometimes, it happens.

Have a salute the serendipitously sacred Saturday! Do something scrumptious.
