  3. Oh, joy. Dogs. We’ve just become mummy and daddy to our first dog! Not sure who is in control right at the moment, but at least we’ve got the pooping outside in control!

    Where had the boat come back from? Very impressive against the background.

    Margaret–It’s Mount Rainier, the 4th highest peak in the continental US! I feel so lucky to have this view.
