A week in photos

Gilbert, or Gil, for short

In the end, I stayed at Aman & Stephanie’s for five nights, breaking my three-night rule for maybe the eighth time this trip. It made for good hanging out, though, and I had not seen them since we met up briefly in New York City, because they happened to be visiting when I was there and one night, when I suddenly had nowhere to go, they had me over to their Hotel Chelsea room and we had a sleepover. Since then, they have gone and eloped in Vegas, so I got to hear that whole story of how it came to be and see the pictures and get a good look at the rings on their fingers.

They actually live just outside Vancouver in New Westminster but we made it into the city a few times and I got to meet several of their other friends and walk around Stanley Park, which was much sunnier this time than when I visited two years ago in rainy October, and then, on my last morning there, another friend, Tamara, had to be in town from Abbotsford for a wedding, so she and I met at a park close to Aman & Stephanie’s and she brought me coffee and we strolled around for about an hour, getting to know each other better, since we had only briefly met in March on a friend’s boat on Isla Mujeres, when I was there for one of my many Mexican paperwork trips.

Here are a few things I saw.

    Margaret, I’m pretty sure it is “sockeye” salmon!

    Spent a couple of hours with Hillary and Chris in Austin last week. Fun, and I got to see their new house. I think it is great!

    Can’t wait to hear of your plans after tomorrow. I’ve been enjoying your posts and the wonderful pictures. I will miss them.

    Cheers,
    Mary Anne

      Oops. I’m pretty sure you’re right. And there was, for the record, a moment of hesitation before I typed that H but, well, I just didn’t check it. Thank you. And thank you also for reading and being so sharp. You’ve been a great editor on this blog : ) and I am going to miss the posts, too. We’ll see what happens. I’m just as eager as you about hearing of my plans. xoxo
