Another month gone by.

Whoa! Another whole month gone by without a new blog.

It has been a busy month with lots of family members coming early in the month for a memorial service for Clyda’s sister Candi.

Tim, Matthew and Ivy arrived on Saturday before Clyda and I got home. It gave them a few days to explore the local area. They found a place up on Camino Cielo called “the Playground” which is a place of big rocks overlooking the valley. Awesome!

They also spent one day at Pismo Beach riding ATV's. That is Matthews real love.

We spent the first weekend at Mammoth Lakes, CA at Clyda’s cousin’s place. While there Tim and the kids rode bicycles on the free trails from the lakes down to town and also up the chair lifts and back to town. They had a great time doing it. 

The next weekend everyone else came. Our niece Dawn, her husband Mat and baby Samantha as well as nephew Michael, wife Lizzie and baby Mathias. Also brother-in-law Mark arrived. We had a house full, so much so that Clyda and I spent our nights down the street at our friend Sharon’s while Mark stayed next door at Paul and Cathy’s house.

On Sunday we all went to the Beach at Rincon Point for a gathering of family, friends, and neighbors to honor Candi. Mark had created a slide program of old and new photos from Candi’s life which we played on a TV. Mark spoke as did Dawn and Lizzie.

This was followed by a lite meal of snacks and sandwiches.

It was a perfect day at the beach in memory of Candi.
