For many many years, we have enjoyed outings with Parapluie and Fisherman. We began our friendship early in our marriages, actually before them, have traveled together many times especially in places like the High Cascades. Such friendships are treasures all of their own. The following are some photos of us all from Saturday because although the flowers were spectacular, it's also spectacular to share such an outing with good friends. The photos are in no special order (mainly because the new blogger system makes ordering them nigh unto impossible if words aren't between them, but they are at least that day).
