Lazy morning at the house as the family prepared to blast off at 1:00. Once Karen was packed we headed up to the Party Pool for a brief last soak. Originally Terry thought she would join us, then opted for some final quiet time with her mom. (I have 'threatened' Terry that I'm not going to leave until she takes at least one soak with me...!)
I have seen lots of beautiful batik sarongs up here, but today Marie was wearing one that had "holes" in it. Someone had sewed crisis-cross grids in some of the designs, then hand cut the holes. It was a stunning effect.
Picked up a wire brush from Doug, and after everyone left I was heading back up to scour the steps (which have gotten slippery again) when the thunder let loose. The sky looked pretty threatening, so it was a no-brainer to make a U-turn back to the house.
