Serendipity on the Spur of the Moment

Round two of chemo for v started this morning.  He's gained weight and blood values are improved.  We continue to remain cautiously optimistic.

To take advantage of his renewed, and temporary, energy we decided to head across the Big Valley to the Yosemite area.  Serendipitously we received a text from friends in Southern California, whom we rarely see, saying they were on their way to Yosemite for the weekend!  We chose Oakhurst as our rendezvous point and despite several stops for photos and breaks we arrived only ten miles ahead of them. 

Recent storms left so much snow in Yosemite that chains were required to enter.  v and I don't have them, but it didn't really matter.  The getaway and meeting with our friends for supper and conversation after a spur of the moment decision during breakfast was magical and energizing.  We're still riding that wave of happiness.

This was just the perfect drive in the country.  We have to go back just so I can try again to capture the silouhettes of the oak branches in the sky at dusk.  I'm just starting out in photography...practice, practice, practice!

In bocca al lupo.  m & v
