Today we had the honor of spending the afternoon under the redwoods at our friends Windy and Derek's house. Their two month old baby Gemma was there, as well as our friend Stephanie and her dog Gretyl. Stella and Oliver were angels, and the snacks and dinner delicious. After dinner, Windy and Derek handed out belated birthday presents, as well as a stack of New York Times Magazines for me, as Windy knows how much I love them. I dug into the stack immediately when we got home. This first photo is of two redwoods fused together that shoot straight through Windy and Derek's deck. Majestic, to say the least!
