A few photos to show where I've been lucky enough to be spending time recently. For the past few years, I've served on a national team of educators. Since we come from all over, our meetings take place in different parts of the country. Here are some views of the glories of Washington State.
Driving through beautiful Wenatchee State Forest.
This splendor awaited me each day last week, as I stepped outside my cabin...
...often on my way to a lovely dining room nestled by mountains, next to the gurgling Icicle River, with outdoor tables under huge old trees where kingfishers swoop, and woodpeckers and hummingbirds take their nourishment, too.
I've never had food served "cafeteria-style" that was as beautiful or delicious as this. The resort's chef takes a great deal of pride in his meals, clearly.
Some of our salads and other produce came from this organic garden.
My days were filled with thought-provoking work meetings and presentations, but I managed to get in some walks and even a much-needed massage. I returned home very much aware of my great good fortune in being able to work with a group of inspiring colleagues in a such a glorious place. Next year my term of service with this group will be over. I'll very much miss the company and the talk, formal and informal, as well as the beauteous settings.
