My Russian Friends.

We spent the day at the Russian River yesterday hanging out with Paul (pictured above) and Merry from the Happy Capitalist and The Merry Stitcher, respectively. We'd never been out to the Russian River and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Paul and Mary are good friends and it'll be hard to say goodbye to them when we leave for Boston.

There's something about spending time with good friends. Despite being surrounded by natural beauty, I was most in awe of our friends and their companionship. Perhaps Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best, "A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature."

Good friends are a great joy. I'm sure you'll make lots of new good friends in Boston, vavoom.

Great photos! And it's good that you got to spend some quality time with your friends. Heck, if you are going to Boston... I'd check in with Lily at

i suppose friendships are great because you can't buy them; rather, you've got to earn and nourish them.

The Russian River looks beautiful.

If a friend is a masterpiece of nature, it's because you (and your friend) did the work to create such a friendship. :-)

anonymous: How can I take you anywhere if I don't know who you are?

You've got some nice scenery there, and nice scenery always looks better still when you are there with friends.
I'm glad you had a good time!
