Memorial Day picnic in the sun

One of our irises from Schaefer Irises. I'm going to really miss Cheryl's iris sales every year.

Aurora and I had a chance to get out and enjoy the sun today. No visitors to the studio so by 2pm we were ready to call it a day and get outta Dodge. We had been invited over to a friend's Memorial Day party/picnic, we brought along a wicked good silken tofu chocolate pudding pie. Won first place in the dessert catagory competition. There's something ironic about having a party centered around Tofu... in Ithaca.

After tossing the Frisbee around for a couple hours and enjoying massive quantities of tofu of every imaginable permutation, it was time to hit the road home. Along the way back we stopped at Robert Treman State Park. I love the way the gorge was cut at this park. Hard to know exactly when the light will be ideal, but sometime we catch a few shots that sing.

Oh no! We told our neighbor and her parents (who were in town for graduation) to stop by yesterday. Crap. Hopefully they got distracted by wine, or will look you up on the internet.

Not to worry. We were home most of the day, and Nancy stayed home when we went off to the picnic. We didn't see much traffic on Sunday. Saw a fair amount of cars Saturday and Monday though. Sure was nice! Met some very interesting folks and sold some pots to boot.
