(Clamming on Cox Bay beach, Tofino.)
Summer vacations are supposed to be all about sand and flip-flops, carefree days with ice cream and fish tacos, berry picking and reading books, but sometimes fog settles in on the sunniest places – literally and metaphorically – and this summer has been shadowed by some unhappy distractions, extra work and -as W puts it- a bad flu in my nose. (It seems head colds have become a summertime tradition for me as soon as I come within the vicinity of a beach, and I must ensure my pockets are jammed full of Kleenex at all times.)
So hopefully you’ll be in that happy, hammocky place, and won’t mind if I call a bit of a time out here, to catch up with myself and some sleep, and regain my voice and appetite. I’m sure it will be soon – as you know I have a hard time staying out of the kitchen. (But good news! I’ve been doing some back end work -no, not squats and lunges- and have moved this site to a new server, so there should be no slow loading times. See – I have been here, just invisible.)
Until then, I hope you’re enjoying your summer, free of any flu in your nose.
